The department offers instruction in the languages, literatures, linguistics, and cultures of China, Japan, Korea, and South and Southeast Asia. The wide range of courses includes some which do not require any knowledge of any particular language. These include survey courses in traditional and modern Chinese and Japanese literature, Chinese and Japanese civilization, Chinese philosophy, and a sequence of courses on Buddhism in India, Tibet, China, and Japan. The department offers undergraduate concentrations in Chinese, Japanese, and Asian Studies. Undergraduates are encouraged to consult departmental advisors about appropriate electives, about introducing an Asian component into a concentration plan focused in another department, as well as about developing a plan of study leading to a concentration in Chinese, Japanese, or Asian Studies.

The department's core courses in the modern languages of East, South and Southeast Asia are designed to develop proficiency in the basic skills of speaking, aural comprehension, reading, and writing. Students are required to make extensive use of the language laboratory. In the advanced courses, reading is emphasized. To speed student progress toward a working knowledge of the languages, intensive work in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean is usually offered during the summer (students must apply for admission to the summer program).

The faculty and staff in the department reserve the right to require students with previous background in an Asian language to take a placement test. Students will be placed in language classes according to the department's best assessment of the student's language skill and previous training. In particular, the department's first-year language courses are designed for students with little or no previous exposure to the language in question. Students having previous experience with a language may be required to begin study at a higher level of instruction.

Please Note: Undergraduates with native or near native ability in Chinese or Japanese are not encouraged to concentrate in their respective languages in this department. It is our belief that these students, who by background have already completed the language requirements for a concentration in either Chinese or Japanese, are better served by a concentration in some other field, such as Asian Studies, or English, Comparative Literature, Philosophy, Religion, History, etc. On the other hand, students who have a native or near native command of Japanese and who wish to take the language courses required for concentration in Chinese, are welcome to do so. Students with a language background in Chinese likewise may consider a concentration in Japanese.

Area Centers. The department is part of a larger network of teaching and scholarship on Asia at the University of Michigan. Three area centers, the Center for Chinese Studies, the Center for Japanese Studies, and the Center for South and Southeast Asian Studies, bring together faculty in the department with Asian area specialists elsewhere on campus. The Centers, subsidized by the U.S. Department of Education, organize and sponsor numerous extra-curricular activities including informal lunch talks, lectures and colloquia by visiting scholars, films, and exhibits.

Overseas Study. Numerous opportunities exist for overseas study of Asian languages and cultures. There may be some restrictions on the use of study abroad credits to meet concentration requirements. Please consult the concentration advisors.

The University of Michigan is a co-sponsor of the Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies in Taipei and the Inter-University Center for Japanese Language Studies in Yokohama. Students may apply to these programs during their second year of courses (or thereafter) in the appropriate language. Admission is based on national competition, and space is limited. However, Michigan students have proven successful in gaining entrance to these programs. The overseas centers provide an opportunity to master spoken Chinese or Japanese and to improve reading and research skills. Limited financial aid is available from both the University and the overseas centers to students who are admitted. Application for admission and aid is made directly to the administrative offices located at Stanford University (Stanford, California); however, the Michigan representatives to the respective programs are available to advise interested students. For information, contact the undergraduate advisor in Chinese or Japanese.

The University of Michigan's Center for South and Southeast Asia is a member of the Consortium on Teaching Indonesian in Indonesia and of the inter-university program, the Southeast Asian Studies Institute (SEASI) held each summer in the United States (at different locations each year).

The Kyoto Center for Japanese Studies (KCJS)is an undergraduate academic year program in Kyoto co-sponsored by nine universities in the United States, including the University of Michigan. This center, developed in cooperation with the University of Kyoto, opened in September of 1989. The program provides a select group of undergraduates with an academic challenge of study in Japanese language and culture. Prerequisites: at least one year of prior enrollment in Japanese language courses at the college level (five hours per week minimum). Application deadline: January 31. Applications are available from the Center for Japanese Studies, 108 Lane Hall, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1290.

The Japan Center for Michigan Universities (JCMU)is an opportunity for undergraduates currently enrolled at the University of Michigan to study Japanese language, society, and culture in Japan. Located in Shiga Prefecture, on Lake Biwa, (near Kyoto and Osaka), the JCMU offers academic courses and programs for university credit. The program is open to undergraduates from any of the fifteen state-supported universities in Michigan, as well as students from Shiga Prefecture. Prerequisites: applicants must have been enrolled full-time for at least one year at one of the state-supported universities in Michigan. Applicants must apply through their home institution. Application deadline: March 1. Applications available from the Center for Japanese Studies, 108 Lane Hall, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1290.

Charles and Myrl Hucker Prize in Asian Languages and Cultures is an annual award made for the best essay produced in an ALC course by a graduate student or undergraduate concentrator in the department. The department's Fellowships and Awards Committee makes the nomination for the award. This prize consists of a $250 check and a copy of one of the books written by Professor Hucker.

Advising. Appointments are scheduled at the department office, 3070 Frieze Building (764-8286). Students who have a formal or informal interest in Asia are encouraged to consult a concentration advisor.


Asian Studies

May be elected as an area concentration program

Asian Studies is a multidisciplinary concentration that offers students an opportunity to pursue interests in the traditional and modern civilizations of Asia.

Students may select from a range of courses in Anthropology, Asian Languages and Cultures, Comparative Literature, Economics, History, History of Art, Linguistics, Near Eastern Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Religion, Sociology, Women's Studies, and courses offered in the schools of Architecture and Urban Planning, Business Administration, Education, Law, Music, and Natural Resources and Environment.

Prerequisites to Concentration. One year (or first-year proficiency) of an Asian language (Chinese, Hindi-Urdu, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Tagalog, Tamil, Thai, Tibetan, or Vietnamese).

Concentration Program. Requires 35 credits chosen in consultation with and approved by the concentration advisor. At least two geographical areas must be represented, and one course must be pan-Asian in nature. Students must:

  1. complete the second year's coursework in the appropriate Asian language (the one chosen as prerequisite to the concentration).

  2. complete Asian Studies 121 and 122, or Asian Studies 111 and 112.

  3. elect, apart from language courses, a minimum of 18 credits in approved courses focusing on Asia (at least 3 credits of which must be elected from the department of Asian Languages and Cultures and at least 3 credits from any social science department); and

  4. complete Asian Studies 381, or an approved equivalent.

Honors Concentration.Candidates for the Honors concentration must complete all regular requirements for the concentration, maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 and at least 3.5 in courses elected as part of a concentration plan. They must also demonstrate the ability to do original work by writing an Honors thesis during the senior year. This thesis is written while enrolled in Asian Studies 395. Alternatively, a member of the faculty can supervise the writing of the thesis on an individual basis. Recommendations for the designation of "Honors," "high Honors," and "highest Honors" are made on the basis of the student's performance in the Honors course and the quality of the student's Honors thesis.


Chinese Language and Literature

May be elected as a departmental concentration program

Prerequisites to Concentration. Chinese 102 or 361.

Concentration Requirements. All students are expected to complete a minimum of 38 credits consisting of two departmental courses in literature in translation (selected from the sequence Chinese 471, 472, 473, 476), 20 credits of language courses beyond the first-year level, and 9 credits in cognate courses in the social sciences and humanities relating to East Asia (e.g., area-related courses in anthropology, history, history of art, linguistics, philosophy, political science, religion, or other appropriate disciplines).

Honors Concentration. Candidates for the Honors concentration must meet all requirements for the concentration in Chinese and must elect Chinese 391 and 392 and, if possible, Chinese 393 and 394. Recommendations for the departmental designation of "Honors," "high Honors," and "highest Honors" in Chinese are made on the basis of the student's performance in the Honors courses and the quality of his or her Honors thesis.


Japanese Language and Literature

May be elected as a departmental concentration program

Prerequisites to Concentration. Japanese 102 or 361.

Concentration Requirements. Students who elect Japanese language and literature as their field of concentration must have completed one year of Japanese (Japanese 101/102 or 361). Concentrators will then be required to take a minimum of 38 additional hours. These 38 hours must include at least two departmental courses in literature in translation (Japanese 401-402), 20 credits of language courses beyond the first-year level (equivalent to the third-year level), and six credits in social science or humanities courses relating to East Asia. Six additional credits are required, composed either of additional cognates or advanced language courses (Japanese 407/408 or 461).

Honors Concentration. Candidates for the Honors concentration must meet all requirements for the concentration in Japanese and must elect Japanese 391 and 392 and, if possible, Japanese 393 and 394. Recommendations for the departmental designation of "Honors," "high Honors," or "highest Honors" in Japanese are made on the basis of the student's performance in the Honors courses and the quality of his or her Honors thesis.
