Going Abroad

Asian Studies minors at Bradley are encouraged to experience Asia first-hand by travelling and studying and eventually working in Asia.

Students may wish to enroll in one of Bradley's faculty-led study abroad courses in Asia, including Business in Chinese Culture (IB 204) or Doing Business in Indian Culture (IB 205). Bradley’s International Programs Office can also help students identify accredited semester-long and year-long study abroad programs in Asia. Visit their website for more information or visit 325 GCC.

In addition, Bradley’s Turner Center for Entrepreneurship in the Foster College of Business Administration offers a variety of research and study opportunities through its Project Asia Program. For more information, contact Dr. James Foley or view these recent articles on Project Asia

Post-Graduation Opportunities in Asia

Faculty in the Asian Studies Program will also advise students on post-graduation opportunities (internships, jobs and graduate programs) as appropriate. Students may also find the following links useful in planning for their lives after Bradley.

  • The Jet Programme provides American college graduates with the opportunity to work in Japan as assistant English language teachers for one to three years. No Japanese language training is necessary. Contact Dr. Jackie Hogan for more information.
  • The Peace Corps offers graduates the opportunity to work with developing communities in 76 countries around the globe, including many in Asia. Among many other things, Peace Corps workers assist with educational and health programs, with environmental and agricultural programs, and with economic development projects.

Washington Semester

Students may also wish to consider applying for the Washington Semester program, offered through Bradley at American University in Washington DC. Opportunities typically include Asia-related courses, often with travel to the region. For details, visit Washington Semester or see Dr. William Hall in 426-C Bradley Hall.
