As a Minor
Proficiency in Japanese language and literature is increasingly an important advantage in business, teaching, translation, and other professional careers.
Course offerings are of two types: language and literature conducted in Japanese and literature courses in English. The courses taught in a foreign language are designed to develop students’ command of modern languages for use orally and in writing, both in everyday experience and in the realm of literature and ideas.
Students who choose a minor in Japanese language and culture should select two courses at the 3000 level or above in addition to any 4000-level course as the capstone course for the Tier III Minor requirement.
