Asian American Studies

From an historical perspective, Asians have played major roles from the early Chinese settlers who built a Chinatown to the Japanese Americans who were confined to an assembly center at the Fresno Fairground to the Hmong refugees who fled from the aftermath of the Vietnam War to create the largest Hmong American community in the state of California. The structure and purpose of the Asian American Studies associate degree is twofold: one is to enhance the skills of students to successfully transfer and complete a baccalaureate degree, second is to provide knowledge and understanding of the Asian American as an individual and as a member of the Asian American community.
