 NFLC Classroom - Spring 2017-Thumbnail, Landscape (386x200)

Learn more about South Asian cultures, languages, and people by participating in the undergraduate South Asian studies minor. 

A candidate for the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degree at Cornell University may achieve the minor by completing at least 18 units of course work (typically five courses) in South Asian studies.

Admission to the minor must be declared no later than the second semester of the junior year; after the start of the seventh semester will be by petition only. Students should prepare a coherent research statement to attach to the application.

Students minoring in South Asian studies are considered members of the South Asia Program and will have an advisor from the program faculty. This advisor will supervise a student's minor and does not substitute for a student's career advisor.
