Student View—P. 11

Auckland University, on the other hand, has taken Asian Studies seriously enough to create a Chair of Asian Studies. This means that Asian Studies has full recognition as a separate discipline and that the head of the department sits on the Professorial Board without the anomaly of an Asian Studies Committee supervising the department as at Victoria. Students at Auckland will be offered a full honours programme in Asian Studies along with an Asian language. Obviously Auckland will take the lead and Victoria will soon be left behind in this vital discipline unless the authorities are willing to change their attitudes considerably.
