Japanese American Studies in Higher Education.
Okutsu, Jim
This paper reviews the results of a survey of institutions of higher education which offer coursework focusing on Japanese Americans and emphasizes the program in Japanese American Studies at San Francisco State University. The results showed a distribution of twenty-eight courses offered at fifteen institutions in California, Washington and Hawaii, with the greatest number of courses being offered at San Francisco State University. A review of course content showed that thirteen are survey courses on the Japanese American experience; seven are about the American concentration camps set up during World War II; and six are on Japanese American culture. The paper stresses the importance of a balanced curriculum including courses in Japanese American history, community, social sciences and culture. (JCD)
