The underlying rationale for this program is the increasing importance of the Asian region, regionally and globally, and hence the critical need for studies of Asia to be included in school teaching and learning programs at all levels. It has two principal domains: knowledge and pedagogy. In the knowledge domain it provides students with a wide range of opportunities to extend their understandings of the societies and cultures of the Asian region. In the pedagogy domain it assists students to develop effective strategies for the inclusion of studies of Asia across the curriculum. Upon completing the program students will be able to view selected societies and cultures of Asia through the perspective of a range of learning areas, such as society and environment, the arts, and English.
