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. The major is focused on the analysis of literature, culture, and thought, and is built on a solid foundation of language study. 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.

Course numbering Language courses use the subject codes CHNS, JAPN, or KREN. Courses with the subject code EALL are content courses whose focus is critical and humanistic; those numbered 200 to 299 are introductory, and those numbered 300 to 399 are advanced. Courses numbered EALL 001 to 099 are freshman seminars on East Asian literature, film, and humanities.

Courses for nonmajors All courses offered by the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures are open to nonmajors.

Prerequisite Candidates for the major must complete CHNS 140 or JAPN 140 or the equivalent.

The major for the Class of 2015 and previous classes Students in the Class of 2015 and previous classes may fulfill the requirements of the major in Chinese or the major in Japanese that were in place when they entered the major, as described in previous editions of this bulletin. Alternatively, they may fulfill the requirements of the major in East Asian Languages and Literatures, as described below for the Class of 2016 and subsequent classes.

Requirements of the major for the Class of 2016 and subsequent classes The major consists of at least eleven term courses beyond the prerequisite. Students must take two terms of advanced modern Chinese (CHNS 150 and 151 or equivalents) or advanced Japanese (JAPN 150 and 151 or equivalents), as well as two terms of literary Chinese or Japanese (CHNS 170 and 171, or JAPN 170 and 171). Students also take a survey course in Chinese, Japanese, or East Asian history and culture, preferably early in their studies. Three courses are required in literature in translation, taught in English, selected from EALL 200–399; one must be focused primarily on premodern content. These three may include courses on theater and film. In addition, two advanced courses with readings in literary or modern Chinese and/or Japanese are required.

Senior requirement Students prepare a one-term senior essay in EALL 491 or a yearlong senior essay in EALL 492 and 493. Those who elect a yearlong essay effectively commit to taking twelve term courses in the major, because the second term of the essay may not be substituted for any of the eleven required courses.

Credit/D/Fail option A maximum of one course taken Credit/D/Fail may be counted toward the requirements of the major, with permission of the director of undergraduate studies.

Placement examination Students who enroll in the department's language courses for the first time but who have studied Chinese, Japanese, or Korean elsewhere, and students who have skills in one of these languages because of family background, must take a placement examination at the beginning of the academic year. The times and places of the examinations are listed on the departmental Web site in August. The Chinese and Japanese examinations have online components accessed through the same site. Students of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean returning from programs abroad must take a placement examination unless the coursework was completed at an institution preapproved by the Richard U. Light Fellowship program. For questions, consult with the associate director of undergraduate studies.

Study abroad Students are encouraged to study abroad. Interested students should consult with the director of undergraduate studies and with the office of the Richard U. Light Fellowship to apply for support for programs in China, Japan, and Korea.
