Minor in Japanese
Certificate of Specialization in Chinese
Certificate of Specialization in Japanese


Critical Languages offers courses in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Hindi, Modern Greek and Vietnamese. Students enroll in these courses for a variety of reasons, which include career goals, personal interest, preparation for study abroad, and the desire to fulfill certain university and college program requirements.

In addition, Critical Languages courses in Chinese and Japanese literature and in Japanese film and popular culture—all given in translation—invite students from any major to develop familiarity with Chinese and Japanese culture.

Within Critical Languages, students can earn a Minor in Japanese, a Certificate of Specialization in Chinese, and a Certificate of Specialization in Japanese. While Critical Languages does not offer its own major, its courses count toward many of the requirements and electives of the Asian Studies major and minor.
