Japanese Major, BA - Large Plan

This major does not require a minor. Study abroad is recommended but not required for this major.

The Japanese Large Plan Major program guides students through the process of learning Japanese, and in doing so, fosters an appreciation of Japanese culture and history. In a broad sense, our program endeavors to help our students develop expanded intellectual horizons, an understanding of themselves, and improved communication and thinking skills, all through the study of the Japanese language.  With Japanese, students can find careers in the electronics and film industries, education, business, tourism, the military, the Foreign Service, and other areas. The US Government designates Japanese as a “critical” language. ROTC students may be eligible to receive scholarships or other benefits if they select this major.
