Japanese Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees Offered (Majors, Minors, listed by degree)

The Japanese minor guides students through the process of learning Japanese, and in doing so, fosters an appreciation of Japanese culture and history. 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 minor.

Only courses at the 200-level or above may count towards the minor.
