Asian Languages


Over a third of the world lives in China, India and Pakistan, and Japan – what would it be like to be able to talk with people in these countries, learn from them as they speak, and experience different cultures from the inside? A major in Asian Languages includes coursework in not only language, but history, literature, media, and popular culture. Majoring in Chinese, Japanese, or Hindi-Urdu, with or without a major in another discipline, opens many doors. So whether you are preparing for a career in business, government, law, education, human services, science, the military, or the arts, developing foreign-language skills in an Asian culture will expand your world view and give you a competitive edge.
