Undergraduate Programs
Minor in Japanese

The Minor in Japanese, which is administered by the Department of Linguistics and Germanic, Slavic, Asian and African Languages, provides students the opportunity to acquire a core of basic knowledge of Japanese language and culture.

The minor is available as an elective to students who are enrolled in bachelor’s degree programs at Michigan State University other than the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Japanese.  With the approval of the department and college that administers the student’s degree program, the courses that are used to satisfy the minor may also be used to satisfy the requirements for the bachelor’s degree.

Students who plan to complete the requirements for the minor should consult an undergraduate advisor in the Department of Linguistics and Germanic, Slavic, Asian and African Languages.
