The Japanese minor focuses on two specific outcomes: developing students’ linguistic proficiency and broadening their insights into Japanese culture so that students may engage in meaningful interactions with Japanese speakers throughout the world. The communication skills and transcultural awareness that students develop throughout the course of the minor prepare them for a wide range of opportunities and experiences, both in and beyond the classroom.
Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified.
Students will be required to take a total of five classes. These classes may include courses and language classes at or above the intermediate level in Dialogues of Civilization at Northeastern University. A maximum of two courses of transfer credits, including transferable courses taken abroad, may count toward the five courses in the minor.
