Japanese - Minor

The minor in Japanese is an academic program open to all students in the university. The minor is interdisciplinary in nature and combines courses in Japanese language and culture with electives in Japanese studies, as well as a capstone project. The minor is a valuable complement to the academic portfolio of any student majoring in the humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences, who wishes to add linguistic proficiency in Japanese and an international dimension to their intellectual profile. In addition, Japanese studies faculty offer study abroad programs in order to enrich student learning experiences and cultural knowledge while helping students attain higher proficiency in the language.

Students must complete JAPN 101 and JAPN 102 before they may declare a minor in Japanese.
