The major in East Asian Languages and Literatures provides an intellectually focused and rigorous immersion in the East Asian humanities. The department's courses reflect the breadth, depth, and variety of East Asian textual traditions, premodern through modern, including film and theater.

Students elect either the Chinese or the Japanese track, but are encouraged to take courses in both tracks and to become familiar with aspects of East Asian literary culture that transcend geographic parameters.
