Wellesley Asian Alliance is absolutely thrilled to announce that Wellesley College will have its first Asian American Studies minor starting 2013-2014. The minor consists of five courses housed under the American Studies program, and it will allow students to count courses from East Asian and South Asian Studies, as well as American Studies, History, Psychology, Religion, and many other departments.
Since our founding in 1994, WAA has been advocating for the recognition of Asian American Studies at Wellesley College. This is the fruit of many years of hard work, perseverance, and inspiration by supporting faculty, administrators, students, and WAA alumnae. To all of those who have supported us, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We couldn’t have done this without you.
Love and solidarity,
Wellesley Asian Alliance, 2012-2013
