SUMMARY

Choosing to study Asian Studies is not only a valuable choice, but typically a required first step for undergraduates trying to begin a career as an asian conflict journalist, an asian culture researcher, or an asian social studies teacher. Interestingly, asian studies is a very rare degree coming in at the 222nd most popular area of study. Last year alone, there were 889 asian studies graduates. In-state tuition for asian studies at private colleges is, on average, 4.5 times more expensive than their public rivals.

There are 146 schools which offer asian studies. 146 universities is on par with other majors offered in the United States. If you're looking to surround yourself with other asian studies majors, look at colleges in California which have more students admitted to asian studies than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to study asian studies is in the Far West region with University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles, and University of Washington-Seattle Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the top conference to major in asian studies is the Pacific-12 Conference with University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles, and University of Washington-Seattle Campus representing the conference. That being said, our belief is that the best school for asian studies is Cornell University, and here you can find our comprehensive list for the best colleges.

The objectively best school might not actually be the 'best' school for you. There can be tons of angels to think about when deciding on ​university. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would affect your choice on which college to attend. Here at authority.org, we have evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which asian studies college has the best campus, the winner is University of California-Los Angeles. If you are very interested in which school boasts the best campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, professor reviews, government databases, and more to compare every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our well researched list for the colleges with the best student life and our choice for the college with the best student life for asian studies is Cornell University. Curious why? Keep scrolling to find out more about our top recommendations. Some of our conclusions might surprise you.

If cost is a primary factor in your choice of where you attend college, you might be cautious about Amherst College. Amherst College appears to be our most expensive college for asian studies, at least regarding out of state attendance. We do have an entire page for the most expensive schools that might put the cost at Amherst College into perspective. For more context, you may be interested to know that asian studies is the 148th most expensive degree in the United States, with an average bill of $34,200. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for asian studies nationally is Maine with costs at the primary institution, Bowdoin College, of $55,822. Even more broadly, the most costly region for asian studies is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Bowdoin College with a cost of $55,822, Amherst College with a cost of $57,640, and Dartmouth College with a cost of $55,605.

Our cheapest region for asian studies is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, Utah State University with a cost of $21,087, and University of Utah with a cost of $26,017. More optimistically, the most affordable university for asian studies is Florida International University. Authority's full list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state students can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $10,900 for a degree in asian studies. The cost grows dramatically to an average of $29,600 for an out-of-state public-school undergraduate. Our selection for the college representing the best value for asian studies: Cornell University. Here you can find our comprehensive list of the schools we see as being the best value in general. Do know, this discussion is predicated on being an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition is considered, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for asian studies majors can vary, but two years after finishing the degree graduates will regularly earn in the neighborhood of $47,200. There is a lot of variation in earnings; top earners can enjoy pay up to $80,900. Straight out of college, the lowest end jobs within the asian studies field make $27,000, which isn't that bad. The top earning graduates from asian studies have come from Cornell University and if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The prevailing diversity of asian studies ranks near the very top, being within the 98th percentile of majors nationally. The school with the most composite diversity for asian studies is Amherst College and here you can find our comprehensive list of the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Asian Studies major only is in the 85th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, in the 98th percentile. White collegians compose the largest share, 36%, of those majoring in asian studies. Additionally, 58% of undergrads pursuing an asian studies degree are women.

The median score of asian studies professors is 4.3 stars, a rating which is 8% greater than the median across every major; which is a pretty good score. If you are interested in the most popular asian studies instructor in the country, look no further than Doyoung Lee from California State University-Northridge. This may surprise you, but the highest ranked asian studies instructors by student are at California State University-Northridge. If we incorporate data beyond simply rankings it becomes clear that the school with the overall best professors for asian studies is Cornell University. One can find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with some of the best instructors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for asian studies is Dartmouth College. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have a comprehensive list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we hope you understand that looking at academics with a perspective only shaped by superlatives can cause issues. We hope you explore our other pages on different topics and explore a few of our background articles on beneficial details to look for as you continue your university search.
