CEAS Minor

Admission to the Minor.

Upon completion of any CEAS course, students may enter the CEAS Minor via the Minor Declaration Tool in the Electronic Portfolio.

Minor Requirements.

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.
