WHY STUDY ASIAN STUDIES AT MBC?
MBC is unique among small colleges in Virginia and the southeast in having a full-scale major in Asian studies with a broad curriculum covering most disciplines and all regions of Asia.
Asia is by far the most important area of the world for U.S. affairs and for students preparing for most professional careers (professor, government work, international business, journalism, etc.) Students, especially those studying oversees, profit greatly by having a background in Asia.
MBC maintains excellent ties with three Japanese universities. Students can take advantage of this opportunity. In 2005, 18 Mary Baldwin students studied/traveled to Japan.
