Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Arts and Humanities

The minor in Japanese is accomplished with 24 credits in the six courses listed below. Although they are not required to study abroad, Japanese minors can also avail of the opportunity to study abroad in the approved programs.

Japanese minors must achieve the equivalent of the Level 4 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (in-house version).

Language Placement Policy

Language majors are required to participate in a BCA Study Abroad or another School-approved program for one academic year or equivalent of two separate semesters. Non-majors who have completed 212 or above also are encouraged to participate in the BCA or approved study-abroad programs.

All students with more than two full years of language preparation must take courses at the 112-level or above. The appropriate language level is determined by an online placement test. In the case of Japanese placement, students must contact the Japanese faculty.

If a student places into a modern language course at the 211-level or higher and earns a B- or better, then he or she will also receive credit for the previous course in the sequence. The course must be taken before the end of the student’s second year. This policy is not applicable to native speakers who were formally educated in the language through the high school level.

Native and heritage speakers must contact their advisor if they plan to take courses in their native or heritage language.

For further information, please consult your advisor or the Dean of Arts and Humanities.
