Center for Southeast Asian Studies
Southeast Asian Studies for summer, fall
There's a lot to choose from in summer and fall 2016. Learn about the CIA in SEA, the Vietnam War, and Asian American families in three online courses this summer. In fall, 10 undergrad and grad courses are open on such topics as religion and cosmology in SEA, anthropology of Muslim cultures, studies in Asian art, politics in SEA, political Islam, gamelan and the Center's always popular Southeast Asia survey course, in addition to our five on-campus SEA language classes (and distance Vietnamese). For details, see complete course listing.

The Center, along with the Center for Latino and Latin American Studies, the Center for Black Studies, and the Center for Burma Studies, will host the annual Area Studies Open House from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, August 25. There will be food, activities, and performances, all outside on College View Court (rain location, Campus Life Building atrium).
