The Contemporary Asian Studies program provides a multidisciplinary, pan-Asian, and thematically driven lens through which to understand the complexities of today’s Asia. Students gain empirical and critical knowledge of South, Southeast, and East Asia from multiple disciplinary approaches, including anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, and sociology. Taught by leading University of Toronto scholars, the CAS program guides students in examining the links between Asia’s history, its emergence onto the global stage, the challenges and opportunities inherent in its modernity, and its future(s) in the global arena.
Offered by the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs, CAS provides a unique, experiential, and intimate undergraduate learning experience at the University of Toronto.
