From the courses chosen as electives, at least one course must be in an area outside the student's primary focus. For example, if the primary focus is the Philippines, the Regional Breadth course should deal with similar themes in China, Japan, East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, or Asian and Pacific Islander American Studies.
Students are encouraged to select one course (4 units) from the following:
Students from throughout the major will converge on the study of selected issues and topics, to be determined by the professor (or professors) directing the Capstone project. Faculty will rotate teaching duties for the Capstone, to be offered each Spring.
Students will have multiple opportunities to engage in projects that provide service learning. Faculty advisers will work closely with the USF Office of Community Service and Service Learning so as to maximize available resources.
Internships develop naturally out of the service learning experience and may qualify as a directed study elective. Other intern opportunities may result from a particular class or professor. These will not replace the service learning requirement but may complement it or the student's areas of interest in other ways. All internships must be approved by faculty advisers and may qualify as directed study projects if student and advisers agree in advance upon goals and requirements.
The following Philippine Studies courses meet this requirement:
