The Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures has moved to the 27th floor of the Cathedral of Learning.
The Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures offers courses in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages, literature, film, theater, and culture.
When you enroll in our department’s courses, you will be taking them from teachers who are nationally recognized as experts in their fields. In our highly rated language classes, you will learn to develop all language skills and use them with fluency and accuracy.
We recognize that linguistic skills alone are not sufficient; you also need to learn about culture and how to behave appropriately in that culture. Moreover, you will learn about other equally important cultural frameworks through the non-language courses offered in our department and other departments on campus.
