East Asian Studies Minor Proposed Description

Students select 15 credits from at least two departments and from two different areas of cultural emphasis (Korean, Chinese, or Japanese). At least 6 credits must be at the 2000 level or above. The elementary levels of language may not be used to meet any of these hour requirements for the minor. Intermediate level language courses in Korean, Chinese and Japanese (at the 2000 level and higher) may be used to meet these requirements. The Office of Special Degree Programs provides student advisement.

In addition to courses offered in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean language programs (civilization courses, literature courses, film courses, theater courses), there are relevant courses offered in Religious Studies, History, Political Science, Philosophy, and Geography. Students are encouraged to consult with the advisor in Special Degree Programs or instructors in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean.
