The Intercollegiate Department of Asian American Studies at The Claremont Colleges (IDAAS) offers a rigorous, multidisciplinary program of study that emphasizes social justice, critical thinking and innovative analysis of the history, society and cultural production of Asians in the United States, within both multiracial American and transnational contexts. The curriculum provides students with a comprehensive grounding in a range of thematic, theoretical and methodological approaches within Asian American studies. The major integrates theory and practice through community work and sustained and focused inquiry in the senior project or thesis. In consultation with an IDAAS advisor, students take core interdisciplinary courses in Asian American studies and select appropriate courses in a range of disciplines throughout the five colleges. Eleven graded courses are required for the major.
