Far Eastern Languages


The 1950-51 course catalogue lists only three courses in Far Eastern Languages "primarily for undergraduates." There is little doubt, therefore, that this is a field mainly for the graduate student, or only the most intensely interested undergraduate.

Required are six "approved" courses in Far Eastern Languages and related subjects. Two courses may be in the related fields.

Honors candidates must offer seven courses in Far Eastern Languages "or in approved related subjects." In this field, they are inclined to be few and far between. The department, in turn realizing this, often proves lenient.
