Update about Courses for Term One in the 2020W Session

On May 11, President Santa J. Ono announced that the majority of UBC classes in Term 1 of the 2020W academic session (September to December 2020) will be offered online.

Further to this announcement, and for the health and safety of all of us, all courses within the Department of Asian Studies (both undergraduate and graduate) will be offered online in Term 1.  Instructors are currently adapting course content and determining the best delivery model for each course. Students can expect a variety of formats which may include a combination of online meetings and outside of class readings, recorded lecturers, and/or assignments, in various proportions. These details will be posted in the individual course notes in the online schedule as they become available.

Please note that additional evening course sections as well as some fully-asynchronous online sections have recently been added to the department’s course offerings, where possible, in order to offer as wide a variety of course times as possible to assist students living in different time zones.
