Asian studies is a broad field covering a diverse and interesting region of the world. For this reason, many students choose to pursue a graduate certificate in Asian studies before jumping into a longer program or in conjunction with other academic or business goals they may have.
For instance you could earn a certificate in Japanese or Asian Languages or even South Asian Dance Studies. A graduate certificate program may be a good option for those in business, government or education in the Asian region who want a deeper understanding of the culture or language. Non-profit organizations or public policy roles may require language skills and cultural understanding to serve those in Asia.
