Distinction is a formal academic honor that the Department of Asian Studies may vote to bestow upon seniors majoring in Asian Studies, Chinese or Japanese who have demonstrated high academic achievement and an ability to produce independently a work of the highest standard. The Department of Asian Studies invites senior majors who seek a significant and satisfying experience as a capstone of their work in Asian Studies to apply for Distinction. More information about distinction can be found online.
This year, nine students have qualified for distinction and have submitted a digital portfolio. We invite you to visit and review their portfolios below!
