Students who choose to pursue a minor in Chinese or Japanese complete the elementary level requirement in contemporary language as part of a total of 24 credits, choosing from the wide range of courses offered in language, literature, and culture.

Students who wish to minor in Chinese or Japanese should meet with an undergraduate advisor to declare the minor at the beginning of their course of study for the minor, and absolutely no later than their final semester of undergraduate study. 

For assistance with being directed to a Chinese or Japanese Undergraduate Advisor, please contact the East Asian Languages & Cultures Program Office, Herter Hall 440.
