Welcome to the Intercollegiate Department of Asian American Studies (IDAAS)!
Thank you to Muriel Alejandrino for her spoken word performance at the 2022 Open House! Click on the photo for a video of a similar performance.
Established in 1998, IDAAS provides a rich academic program to all students at the Claremont Colleges (Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Pomona, and Scripps.) IDAAS has thirteen core faculty and offers interdisciplinary undergraduate majors and minors in Asian American Studies. Carrying forward the community-based origins of Asian American Studies, we provide innovative opportunities such as the Margo Okazawa-Rey Summer Fellowship, creative and community-based theses, the Peter Kiang Thesis Prize, and the Merle Woo Project Prize.
