                                               Rationale:

                                               The addition of a new thematic stream will
                                               increase the areas of specialization the
                                               student will be able to opt for.

                                               The new thematic stream covers topics
                                               underrepresented so far.

                                               Former Teaching Committee discussions
                                               have pointed to the need of a stream that
                                               could engage students in topics that are
                                               pressing in the Asia-Pacific region.

                                               Recent hired Faculty creates the possibility
                                               to offer students the Culture and

                                               Students have showed an interest in topics
                                               to be covered under the new Thematic
