Faculty members offering Asian studies courses bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their teaching. Through extensive travel or residence in Asia, the professors have developed a deep personal acquaintance with the region. They are committed to sharing their knowledge and to preparing CSB/SJU students for the future. By meeting one-on-one with students, faculty members are able to help them explore possible careers and assess which courses will best help students meet their academic and professional objectives.
