    Language Minor Requirements

    The EALC Department certifies minors in Chinese and Japanese language.

    The Chinese language and Japanese language minors both require six language courses. Students must take at least four language courses in our Bi-Co programs, and can take at most two at the Quaker Consortium or our approved off-campus domestic or Study Abroad programs. Minors are approved in consultation with the language program directors.

    Global Asia Minor:

    Six courses centrally concerned with Asia (East, Southeast, and South) and its diaspora, at least one of which is at the 300 level. They may be drawn from any department in the Quaker Consortium, and may include up to two advanced language courses. Those interested in minoring in Global Asia should consult with the convener (currently Prof. Guangtian Ha at Haverford) no later than the fall of their senior year.
