The Minor in Japanese is designed to provide students with language training and an understanding of Japanese society and culture as revealed through the study of the language and literature. Students with previous studies in Japanese should consult the advisor for advanced placement and course selections to complete the Minor. Successful completion of the Minor in Japanese will be noted on the student’s official CSUN transcript.
The Minor prepares students to teach Japanese and enter graduate programs requiring knowledge of the Japanese language, including area studies, business or law. It also helps students aspiring to careers in international business and law, public and community service, and communication and the media.
