The Department of Asian Studies is one of the leading Asian Studies programs in Canada, offering over 80 courses that cover Asian culture, thought, religion, and languages.
The Chinese Language Program held a singing contest in December to celebrate the end of 2020 and welcome the new year. Each Chinese language course was able to participate and language students from various backgrounds all came together to spread joy through song during the holiday season.
To help us to get 2021 off to a flying start, we wanted to introduce our two newest faculty members in Asian Studies! Hessam Dehghani is our new Assistant Professor of Teaching (Persian Language and Culture); and Zhaokun Xin is our newest Lecturer in Chinese Language.
