Japanese

A minor in Japanese provides a significant complement to any declared major in the sciences, social sciences, humanities or the arts. The Japanese minor is comprised of a balance of literature and culture courses taught in English or Japanese, and a minimum of beginning third-year language proficiency. Whatever path one follows upon graduation, fulfilling the Japanese minor prepares the student for the increasingly global contexts of the modern world.

Requirements: 

20 units

Choose 20 units of upper division JPN courses

  • All upper division courses, including both language courses and literature in translation courses, may be used to meet this requirement.
  • One approved lower division course (JPN 010, 025, 050) may also be used.
  • In addition, students must demonstrate their language proficiency, normally through completion of JPN 006.
  • Only four units from 192, 197T, 198, and 199 may be applied to the minor.

Total = 20 units
