Asian American Studies Program

COVID-19 Update
To ensure the health and safety of our faculty, students, staff, and surrounding community, UMass Boston will continue to operate in hybrid fashion, with some courses lodged on campus and others—the majority—continuing in remote modality during the fall 2020 semester. Many answers about the campus's response to the coronavirus can be found in our special section.

In 2014, the UMass Boston Asian American Studies Program joined the School for Global Inclusion and Social Development as an official transdisciplinary partner. Asian American Studies now lives under the umbrella of SGISD. It primarily offers undergraduate courses, but with an increased opportunity for collaboration and interaction through academic work, research, and service across other programs.

In addition, Asian American Studies has opened its classes to SGISD graduate students. Undergrads majoring in Asian American Studies will also be able to sit in on SGISD courses with faculty approval.

Asian American Studies combines rigorous academic credentials with a hands-on ethic, working in Asian American communities in Boston and beyond. Learn more about this program.
