Undergraduate Minor Programs

 

Chinese (165)

The minor in Chinese consists of four courses in Chinese beyond the elementary level, in both modern and literary Chinese plus two additional elective courses in the area of concentration (subject code 165).

Japanese (565)

The minor in Japanese consists of four courses in Japanese beyond the elementary level plus two additional elective courses in the area of concentration (subject code 565).

Korean (574)

The minor in Korean consists of four courses in Korean beyond the elementary level plus two additional elective courses in the area of concentration (subject code 574).

Asian Studies (098)

The interdisciplinary minor program in Asian studies consists of six courses distributed as follows:

  1. Two courses in Asian studies, chosen from East Asian Civilizations: Traditional Era (098/214:241), East Asian Civilizations: Modern Era (098/214:242), Global East Asia (098:250), or the Seminar on East Asian Studies (098:444);
  2. Four elective courses in Asian Studies, at least three of which must be offered in subject codes 098, 165, 214, 565, or 574, and may include language courses.

NOTE: The language concentration chosen for this major/minor must be different from the language concentration, if any, of any other major or minor a student may complete. That is to say, for students who complete more than one major or minor in the department of Asian Languages and Cultures (in subject codes 098, 165, 214, 565, 574), a different language of concentration must be chosen for each of the majors and/or minors. For example, students may not major in East Asian Languages and Area Studies with a concentration in Japanese and minor in Japanese, nor can a student major in Chinese and minor in Asian Studies with a concentration in Chinese. But students can, for instance, major in East Asian Languages and Area Studies with a concentration in Japanese and minor in Chinese, or major in Chinese and minor in Asian Studies with a concentration in Korean. Also, students are not allowed do both the major in East Asian Languages and Area Studies" (214) and the minor in Asian Studies (098), as there is too much overlap in content between the two to make this a viable option.
