By completing the degree requirements, the student will acquire proficiency in speaking, reading, writing, and understanding Japanese and will gain knowledge of Japanese culture. The student will be able to communicate in Japanese, write formal compositions, and read the texts of Japanese authors, all at the intermediate-mid level of competency. Competencies will be assessed throughout the language sequence with written and oral exams. This major provides career opportunities where knowledge of Japanese is useful and prepares students for continued learning of Japanese. The student who has completed two or more years of Japanese in high school will have the opportunity to enroll with advanced standing.

At least 50 percent of the courses required for the Japanese major must be completed at El Camino College. Japanese 4 must be completed at El Camino College.

Required Core: 5 units


Total Units: 18


Additional courses from List A or List B must be completed to achieve 18 total units.

*Note: Non-Japanese language courses should only be used when a student needs additional units from List A and

1.) they have placed out of courses in the Japanese sequence or

2.) a key Japanese course is not offered in time for the student to meet their educational goal. 

JAPA 99 should be reserved primarily for when a necessary upper-level Japanese course is not offered in time for a student to meet their educational goal.
