The Japanese Minor allows students to engage in rigorous language and cultural study while pursuing their chosen major.  Many students in Asian Studies choose to pursue a Japanese minor, as do students in such diverse majors as Biology, Physics, International Affairs, English. In fact, the Japanese minor can be paired with any major on campus. 


A minimum of 20 semester credits (five courses) beyond 202, distributed as follows:

* Japanese 230 or 290.

* A minimum of four courses from the following list: Japanese 251, 252 (if two courses are taken); 310, 320, 410, 420; overseas offerings 308, 309, 315, 316, 408, 409, 415, 416.  At least one 4-semester-credit language course must be taken on campus.

Participation in an overseas program in Japan is highly recommended.  No more than two courses applied toward the minor may be used to complete requirements for another major or minor.
