Explore the crossroads in Center's survey courses
There's still time to enroll in the Center's Southeast Asia survey courses for fall semester. New this year is SEAS 625, a graduate-level version of SEAS 225, the Center's longtime undergraduate course that covers the region's history, cultures, languages, religions, geography, and politics. CSEAS Assistant Director Trude Jacobsen will teach the new graduate-level seminar; graduate assistant Iqra Anugrah will teach SEAS 225.
