3:26 p.m., Oct. 7, 2013--The University of Delaware’s Area Studies Fair will be held this Friday, Oct. 11, from 3–5 p.m., in the Perkins Student Center Gallery.

Hosted by the Center for Area and Global Studies (CGAS), the event, now in its second year, is designed to showcase the local opportunities that UD undergraduate students have to engage in global scholarship and to inform students about how easy it is to add a major or minor in area studies to their existing majors. 

Global Stories

China partnerships

A UD delegation recently traveled to China to participate in an event designed to create partnerships between UD and high-achieving Chinese high schools.

Olympic activities

UD's Matt Robinson, who has been active with a variety of Olympic programs, recently made a presentation at the Americas Best Practices Symposium on National Olympic Committee Management and Sport Performance in Miami.

UD offers majors in Asian, European, and Latin American and Iberian Studies, and minors in African, Asian, Islamic, Jewish, and Latin American and Iberian Studies. 

In addition to information, the Area Studies Fair will provide free food and beverages and an exciting array of artistic presentations to highlight different cultural traditions, from a tango exhibition, to Chinese and African dances, traditional Jewish songs and international music.
