Aims of the Minor
In line with the University’s twin goals of internationalisation and developing students’ global awareness, the Minor in Japanese Studies programme is primarily designed to enrich our students’ major studies by content learning (eg Japanese culture, history and current affairs) at the University or during their exchange semester(s) in a Japanese university. The second objective of this Minor programme is to equip our students with intermediate competence in the Japanese language, which allows students to use Japanese in everyday situations.
Minor Requirements (15 CPs)
This Minor is open to all undergraduate students. To declare the Minor, students are required to take 3 core courses plus 2 elective courses from the following list:
(Choose any 2 courses)
|Japanese Language and Culture

NOTE: For each exchange semester, up to 2 courses (6 CPs) completed overseas can be used to claim a Second Major/Minor. Should you have any questions, please contact Registry.
*Students who have basic Japanese proficiency have the option of taking an additional elective from the list to replace Japanese I. Students' proficiency will be assessed before approval to do so is given. Japanese II and III carry no exemption.
