Graduated in 2022

Alex Ren’s identity as an Asian American fueled her interest in East Asia from middle school and throughout college, and she wanted a program that would support a depth and breadth of cultural experiences. Northeastern’s Asian Studies major was the perfect match, inspiring Alex to think in dynamic, pluralistic ways.

Alex’s Path

“As an Asian Studies major, I found I could learn about history, culture, and literature—and connect that to changing economic, cultural, or gender expectations. The essence of the major is being able to combine all of that to gain an in-depth lens of what you’re studying.”
