Asian Languages and Cultures is the premier center for education about Asia in southern California and is one of the leading departments in the nation. ALC courses enroll thousands of students each year — far more than any other department of Humanities at UCLA other than English. Despite the fact that we teach so many students about all aspects of Asia (including many major languages regarded as being among the world’s most difficult to learn), the university provides us with relatively meager resources. For example, ALC has only about 22 professorial positions while our fellow departments in the Humanities devoted to European languages and cultures (Classics, French, Germanic, Italian, Scandinavian, Spanish and Portuguese) can boast about 70.
