Asian and Middle Eastern Languages & Studies - Japanese - Minor

The minor in Japanese emphasizes language study while also recognizing the importance of learning about Japan through work in fields such as literature, history, anthropology, and religion. This program will be of particular interest to students interested in careers in academia, business, government, or other professions where Japanese language proficiency is important.

This minor requires a minimum of 12 credits in Japanese and six credits in Japanese-related courses. The minor can only be taken as part of an undergraduate degree program and is awarded at the time of graduation. An average of 2.0 in all Japanese courses as well as a minimum grade of C- must be earned in all courses used for the minor.
