About Us

The Department of Asian American Studies at UCLA is the largest of its kind in the country: it has seventeen core faculty members; a selective body of graduate students; a moderate but steadily growing major; and a minor comprised of students from social science, humanities, professional schools, and life/physical sciences.

The Department also satisfies a significant portion of UCLA's demand for its graduate and undergraduate education, through a range of courses either specially designed by our faculty or offered directly from our curriculum. Supporting all aspects of the Department's teaching mission is a team of highly dedicated office staff.
