The Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures offers two distinct majors: Chinese Language and Literature and Japanese Language and Literature. The goal of each major is to provide students with a solid foundation in the disciplines of language and literature through intensive language training and broad exposure to the literary and cultural traditions of the culture under study. The department also offers a minor in Chinese Language and Literature.

In addition, Korean language and culture courses are offered.

The department reserves the right to place a new student in the language course for which she seems best prepared regardless of the number of units she has offered for admission.
