In recent years, American policy makers have spoken of a “pivot to Asia,” meaning an increased emphasis in American foreign and economic policy on the Asia-Pacific region. As a result, there’s never been a better time for students to develop cultural competency and understanding of the region.


The Asia Pacific region is a hot topic these days with plenty of opportunities for students wanting to understand this fascinating and sometimes misunderstood part of the world, whether their chosen fields are in business, government, international or non-governmental organizations, or academia.

Why this program 

Students in CWU’s Asia Pacific Studies interdisciplinary program gain a broad understanding of the complexities of the Asia-Pacific region. They learn about the geography and history of Asia and the Asia Pacific islands as well as an overview of Asia Pacific life and culture.
