Program in Asian Studies
Mon-Fri, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
The BA/BS Master’s in Asia Pacific Studies (MAPS) is a 4+1 program that allows current USF undergraduates to study in an undergraduate major, complete graduate-level courses and requirements, and earn both a bachelor's and master's degree in five years.
The ideal candidate is an undergraduate student with a 3.5 or above GPA who has a strong interest in Asia, especially one who has already begun the study of an Asian language. Undergraduates in this program usually earn 8-12 graduate credits, while still pursuing their undergraduate degree. These credits are then applied to the program's 28 credit total for the MA in Asia Pacific Studies.
