Completing the Japanese Minor Program

Academic Advice

Application should be made when the student has completed the prerequisite courses or during the semester in which the second prerequisite course (JPN 102) will be completed.

Students with prior Japanese language proficiency should consult with the program director to arrange an appropriate program. Students who demonstrate proficiency in Japanese at any of the required levels may have the corresponding language course requirements waived. These waived language courses will not count toward the minor but must be replaced with other Japanese language or Japanese language-related courses to bring the total number of courses to six and the minimum total number of credits to 18.

Transfer Credit Policy

Due to the fact that relatively few students arrive at UB having taken a significant number of Japanese courses, the Department of Linguistics does not have specific transfer credit policies. The possibility of transfer credits can be discussed on a case-by-case basis with the program director.
