Asia Pacific Studies

In the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies Program (MAPS), students develop valuable cultural competency of the Asia Pacific region. Reflecting the diversity and innovative spirit of San Francisco, the MAPS Program offers a wide range of courses in the humanities and social sciences, including history, literature, politics, business and culture. 

Along with the interdisciplinary coursework, students immerse themselves in San Francisco's vibrant and diverse Asian Pacific American communities through internship and networking opportunities. Graduates gain the skills, knowledge and training for careers and fields in this dynamic region.

The MAPS Program resides in USF's Center for Asia Pacific Studies, which offers many resources and opportunities to MAPS students. Established in 1988, the Center fosters greater understanding of the Asia Pacific and strengthens connections between cultures and societies.
