Region: Asian History
Sample Course Path
Asian history is a particular strength of the UO History Department, with a substantial breadth and depth of course offerings. For anyone who has dreamed of walking along the Great Wall of China or visiting the Taj Majal, this path lets students follow in the footsteps of those who conceived of and built these monuments, and to examine other areas of the world that have contextual or comparative links with Asian history.
Please note that the courses listed below are only suggestions. Students’ individual selections may vary due to course availability and personal interest. See advisors for questions about specific courses or requirements.
Why It Works
This path concentrates on Asia while also fulfilling the 49 required credits for the major.
A HIST 407 research seminar is required of all majors and also counts toward the overall minimum for upper division credits. Note that the topic in this example (Cities of South Asia) could also count toward the Asia field requirement, if needed.
Japanese merely a suggestion; there are many language options available at UO to fulfill the second language requirement.
