Become a Southeast Asian Minor!

Undergraduates who minor in Southeast Asian Studies are advised by SEAP Program Faculty advisors who collaborate with them to construct a course of study based upon their particular area of interest.

Southeast Asian undergraduate minors are invited to attend all formal and informal SEAP events, as well as to make use of the George McT. Kahin Center, which serves as a campus focal point for faculty and students with an interest in Southeast Asia.

Further information is available through the Asian Studies Department on area minors or the major. It is also possible to satisfy the requirements for a minor in Southeast Asia by studying at universities in Indonesia, Thailand, or Vietnam through the Cornell Abroad Program

Become a SEAP Student

Undergraduate minors are encouraged to fill-out the SEAP Student Form to become involved with the Southeast Asia Program.

Undergraduate students who have an interest in Southeast Asia, but whose academic program does not allow for a minor in Southeast Asian Studies may become members of the Southeast Asian Program by registering as affiliates.
