Asian Studies

The Senior Program

The Senior Program is the culminating intellectual experience at Hamilton, in which the knowledge, language skills and insights gained in the first three years are combined and integrated. The centerpiece of the Senior Program is the senior project; majors work independently, with the close guidance of at least two faculty members, to produce and present a final, focused work of scholarship.

Recent projects in Asian studies include:
