MIT Global Studies and Languages offers a Minor and Concentration in Japanese.

Advisor:  Paul Roquet (email)
In light of the importance of foreign languages in today’s international world of science and engineering, the HASS Minor gives undergraduates a unique opportunity to combine a degree in science or engineering with a Minor in Japanese. The Minor in Japanese leads students who have already reached an intermediate level of proficiency (third semester or above) into a more advanced study of the language, literature, and culture. A minor in Japanese consists of six subjects arranged in 3 tiers each of which typically has to be represented in the minor. Please note that Japanese I & II do not count towards the Minor.

There are several concentration options, depending on whether your focus is language or literature and culture. A language concentration consists of 3 or 4 language classes, depending on your incoming language competence. An upper level concentration may include 3rd or 4th semester language plus upper level classes taught in the foreign language. Classes offered in English may, with prior approval, be applied towards fulfilling certain concentration requirements.
