Japanese Language Minor

University Park, College of the Liberal Arts (JAPNS)

The minor in Japanese is intended to provide students with a good working knowledge of the Japanese language, culture, and society in order to broaden their horizons and sharpen their awareness in internationalism and globalization. Students undertake three years of language and culture/film/literature study (or equivalent); education abroad can be included.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
