Program Description

A minor in Japanese aims to offer learner-centered courses consistent with the Department of World Languages and Cultures’ dual emphasis on linguistic skill building and teaching content throughout the curriculum. Students need to complete 15 credit hours of Japanese, of which a minimum of six (6) must be taken in residence at KSU. Advanced speakers of Japanese should consult with the Japanese Program advisor about testing options using the Advanced Standing examinations available in the Department of World Languages and Cultures.

A native or near-native speaker of Japanese may: 

  1. Take an Advanced Standing Exam for credit in lieu of JAPN 2002 , or 
  2. Take 2 Elective Courses in lieu of JAPN 2002  (the student would still have to take an additional Elective course to fulfill the Elective requirement).

This program is a part of the Norman J. Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences .
