A brief introduction to South and Southeast Asian Studies
In your first year you will follow core courses designed to give you a basic understanding of the history, cultures, and modern societies of South and Southeast Asia.
South and Southeast Asian Studies is the right choice for you if:

- you are able to work consistently and independently
- you are highly interested in finding out more about other cultures and mentalities.
