The Language Program consists of academic and teaching minors in French
and Spanish, and one-year course sequences in Japanese and Latin. For
course listings and program requirements, check the individual major/minor
sections which are listed alphabetically.
Japanese Program (JAPN)
The Language Program offers a one-year Japanese course sequence with
occasional second-year offerings. It is designed to give students practical
tools for communicating in written and spoken Japanese and to deepen cultural
sensitivity. While Japanese has great practical advantages for certain
fields, most notably business, it would expand the cultural horizons of
any liberal arts student. No minor is offered in Japanese. Students who
have had two or more years of high school Japanese are excluded from Japanese
110 and 111.
Latin Program (LATN)
The Latin Program offers an intensive one-year Latin course sequence.
Latin is the language that has been the most widely used throughout the

European languages. Latin offers great practical advantages, especially
for students anticipating careers in the humanities, law, medicine, nursing,
and other sciences. No minor is offered in Latin. Students who have had
two or more years of high school Latin are excluded from Latin 110 and
