Marietta’s Asian Studies program focuses on China, preparing you to live and work in an interconnected world in which Asia is central. You will start with a grounding in language and history, explore the roots of Asian arts and religions, and then explore contemporary Asian politics and economics to transition into the world of work.

In addition to choosing from a wealth of courses on Asian subjects, you will have several opportunities to put your coursework into practice. We have strategic relationships with universities in Asia, allowing you to study abroad in China, Japan, Korea, Thailand and more, and to conduct research and internships in China.

Marietta also offers a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), with agreements that enable certified graduates to teach in Chinese high schools and colleges.
