The University of Mississippi offers an undergraduate minor in Japanese and four levels of instruction. The courses in elementary, intermediate and advanced Japanese emphasize both the language and culture. The minor in Japanese requires the completion of 15 hours of Japanese courses, beyond the 100 level. A maximum of 9 credits for the minor may be taken through an approved study abroad program. Students may complete their language requirement by studying Japanese. Study-abroad opportunities are available at universities in Japan.
WHY STUDY JAPANESE?
Japanese is a beneficial language to learn and knowing Japanese is a marketable skill to have. Japan is the second largest nation in the world in economic size, and the country plays important roles in the world in cutting-edge industries such as computers, artificial intelligence, electronics, robotics and new materials.
The Department maintains an active chapter of the Japanese Honor Society. Membership is based upon academic performance.
