If you like a good challenge and want to study a language that is vastly different than other Western languages, consider learning Japanese. As the world continues to be a shared environment for business, travel and more, your knowledge about the culture and language will come in handy.
The Japanese minor program at UW-Eau Claire provides an in-depth introduction to this exciting culture. As part of this minor, you will be strongly encouraged to participate in a study abroad program in Japan. If you want more detailed course information, please refer to the catalog.
The department of languages is a unique part of UWEC, with a respectable set of knowledgeable staff members who are enthusiastic in sharing a piece of their language of expertise.
