The Department offers Bachelor of Arts programs in the following tracks:
The undergraduate Japanese program manual provides detailed information about all aspects of the program. Before registering for specific courses, students should consult with the undergraduate advisor concerning requirements for the Japanese major and minor. For placement in Japanese language courses, students should consult with the coordinator of the Japanese language program. We encourage students to broaden their career options through a double major, combining their language study with another field of interest.
For more detailed descriptions of all courses offered, see the Department’s list of Courses.
