Upon completion of any CEAS course, students may enter the CEAS Minor via the Minor Declaration Tool in the Electronic Portfolio.
The minor requires completion of any 5 CEAS courses and Intermediate-level competence in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean.
No more than 2 of the 5 courses may be language courses. No more than 2 of the 5 courses can be performance or studio art courses. No more than 1 of the 5 courses can be a study abroad course.
The rule that no more than 2 of the 5 courses can be language courses means that students beginning their CJK language study at Wesleyan may have to take as many as 7 courses to fulfill the minor (because 4 courses would be required to reach intermediate competence, but only 2 will count toward the minor).
Note that while the CEAS Major requires that native speakers of a CJK language must study a different CJK language does not apply to the minor, so a native speaker of Korean, for example, can pass the "intermediate competence" standard without taking any classes, and simply take any 5 CEAS classes.
