In the revised core curriculum, Yo Aizawa's first-year seminar, Three Ways of East Asian Thought, also satisfies the requirement of the core course in Cultures of Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Aizawa's course provides a hands-on introduction to Zen Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. Students meditate, keep journals, perform Tai Chi exercise, and will visit a Zen monastery in the Catskills.
