New Major and Minor Requirements starting Fall 2018

Chinese Language and Culture Major Requirements and Japanese Language and Culture Major Requirements have been revised.  Starting in Fall 2018, students will develop a major plan with a focus on Chinese or Japanese Language and Culture in consultation with an advisor.  All plans will include no fewer than 8 courses (32 credits).  Students majoring in either discipline will attain language proficiency, complete a minimum of four country-focused content courses, successfully complete a Study Away experience, and will complete a Capstone course or honors thesis.  Students should contact their advisor with questions.
