Students interested in conducting research may receive course credit for this research, counting towards any departmental research requirements for the major. Students not receiving research course credit may take a third course toward their major. The fourth class is a course about the region’s history and culture (e.g., Singapore Studies) that will count towards a general Colgate credit. In addition, the pre-term extended study exploring Singapore and Bali and led by Prof. Ramachandran will provide a half credit and will satisfy Colgate’s Global Engagements Core requirement.
