University Majors

California State University, Monterey Bay
World Languages & Cultures B.A. Japanese Emphasis

In alignment with the mission of the College of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the mission of the World Languages and Cultures program is to prepare students to be active participants in an ever-shrinking and increasingly interdependent globe. WLC prepares students for this global interdependence by developing their literacy in global matters, multi-culturalism and cultural diversity, as well as helping them achieve a formidable level of proficiency in a world language other than English. We also aim to help Heritage speakers maintain and develop their native language skills. The student graduating with a major in World Languages and Cultures will reach an advanced-high level of proficiency in the language emphasized, as well as acquire a reasonable understanding of different cultural elements (including the arts, literature, history, social interaction, philosophy, etc.), of the primary culture(s) represented by the language which they have chosen to emphasize.
