East Asian Languages & Cultures 2021-22

The East Asian Languages and Cultures (EALC) major offered by the Department of Asian Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (DALLC) gives students an opportunity to pursue both
language study and gain more in-depth knowledge about Chinese or Japanese culture. The major requires at least six semesters of language study (or to attain the minimum proficiency equivalent to the completion of 302) in one East Asian language offered by the department (currently Chinese Mandarin and Japanese), two CHIN/JAPN disciplinary courses on Chinese/Japanese literature, linguistics, or cultural studies, and two approved electives related to Chinese or Japanese language and culture. This major offers a dual-language option: students who are able to complete the 402 level in either Chinese or Japanese by the end of their sophomore year can opt to learn a second Asian language and reach the Intermediate level in speaking that language by the time of graduation. Please consult with the chair or language coordinator about this option. For more information about the major, please read the Course Catalog PDF document about the Department of Asian Languages, Literatures, and Cultures or visit the department website.
