The Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures presents a wide range of courses in several programs, from introductory courses in the languages and literatures of East Asia (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) to advanced graduate-level study of linguistics and literature. Undergraduate degrees include a bachelor of arts (BA) degree in Chinese or Japanese and minors in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. The department also offers master’s (MA) and doctoral (PhD) degrees in East Asian languages and literatures. At all levels, students may choose to focus on either language or literature, though all degree programs require course work from both areas. 

The department typically supports dozens of students in graduate-level study while 100 undergraduate BA majors graduate each year. Faculty members are strongly committed to promoting a rich immersion in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, and undergraduates and graduate students alike are encouraged to study abroad and conduct research throughout East Asia. 

Preparation

The department recommends the following preparation for study leading to an undergraduate major or minor in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean:

  1. As much work as possible in the student’s major language, focusing on oral and written communication and reading comprehension
  2. Knowledge of the history, culture, and geography of the area in which that language is spoken
  3. Course work in literary analysis and cultural studies

Careers

Students with an undergraduate degree in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean are well prepared for graduate-level study in the humanities, social sciences, and professions (e.g., law or business). They are also suited to a range of jobs in many different sectors, including business, education, and journalism as well as government agencies and nonprofit organizations. Recent graduates have found jobs in all of these areas.

Undergraduate Studies

The Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures offers undergraduate major programs in Chinese and Japanese languages and literatures. Each program enables students to achieve proficiency in reading, writing, and speaking the language and to acquire a fundamental knowledge of the literature and culture of the country. The Department also offers undergraduate minors in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. 

Preparation

Students considering a major in Chinese or Japanese should decide their major as early as possible so that they can satisfy the requirements in four years of undergraduate study. Background in languages, literature, or history at the high school or community college level is good preparation for the student majoring in Chinese or Japanese.

Careers

A major in Chinese or Japanese prepares a student for graduate study in the humanities, social sciences, and professional schools and also for careers in business, teaching, law, journalism, and government agencies. Career options for people with knowledge of Chinese, Japanese, or Korean are steadily increasing.

Overseas Study

The University of Oregon has four overseas study programs in China and Japan. Students in University of Oregon study abroad programs enroll in courses with subject codes that are unique to individual programs. Special course numbers are reserved for overseas study. See International Affairs in the Academic Resources section of this catalog. Students are strongly advised to talk with their major advisor before they study abroad to plan their courses of study and make sure the courses they take in China and Japan will count toward major requirements.

Kindergarten through Secondary Teaching Careers

Students who complete the BA degree with a major in Chinese or Japanese are eligible to apply for the College of Education’s fifth-year licensure program in middle-secondary teaching or the fifth-year licensure program to become an elementary teacher. More information is available from the College of Education.

The Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures offers programs of study leading to the degrees of master of arts (MA) and doctor of philosophy (PhD) in East Asian languages and literatures. Students may choose to specialize in Chinese, Japanese, or Korean studies.

In addition to departmental requirements, graduate students must fulfill the general requirements of the Graduate School listed in that section of this catalog.

The Chinese, Japanese, and Korean studies programs, which prepare students to work in a variety of professional and academic fields, provide intensive training in linguistic and textual analysis and an extensive exposure to literary theory, film studies, and comparative and cultural studies. The department encourages students to develop their specialization in East Asian literatures and films in broader, more comparative, and more interdisciplinary and transnational perspectives than has been the case in traditional programs. The faculty’s research and teaching interests cover the major fields, genres, and chronological divisions of Chinese and Japanese literature and film. They encourage creative connections and challenges to conventional disciplinary boundaries by exploring the relationships between literature-cinema and such areas as history, law, linguistics, politics, religion, philosophy, sociology, theater and the performing arts, and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies.

Comparative Literature

Several members of the department’s faculty participate in the Comparative Literature Program. For more information, see the Comparative Literature section of this catalog.

Linguistics

The departmental Chinese, Japanese and Korean linguists work closely with the Department of Linguistics in research, teaching, and program development in theoretical and applied linguistics. Interested students are encouraged to work closely with a departmental advisor to pursue a specialization or field in East Asian linguistics and/or East Asian second-language acquisition.

In addition, several members of the department's faculty are affiliated with other UO graduate programs, including the graduate specialization in translation studies, graduate certificate in new media and culture, graduate certificate in women's and gender studies, and cinema studies.

Complete details and answers to specific questions about graduate programs in the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures are available from the department’s graduate secretary.

Upon submission of the online application, each person will be notified via e-mail and provided with instructions on how to upload their recommendations
  5. Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores. The GRE test is required for all applicants. Applicants should take the test in time for the official results to arrive to the university prior to January 1. The online application is self-reporting, however official GRE scores need to be sent to the University of Oregon (institution code 4846) and the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures (department code 2601)

Applications are due by January 1. New students are typically admitted to the program for fall term.

Graduate Employee Fellowships

A number of graduate employee fellowships (GEs) are available each year for new graduate students in the department. Students must apply to the department by January 1 for admission and appointment the following fall term. During each term of the appointment, graduate employees must register for and complete at least 9 credits of course work that can be applied to the degree program.

First-year GEs must attend an orientation and training workshop, which is held the week before fall term begins.

MA Students Seeking Entry to the PhD Program

If the student also decides to seek admission into the PhD program, the MA examination administered shall include the oral component.

An oral examination shall take place no later than the seventh week of the term in which a request for the degree has been made. It shall consist of a one- to two-hour interview with the faculty committee, which is required to be formed by the student and the advisor before the student takes the comprehensive exam, and shall include evaluation of the following:

  • the student’s skills in critical thinking, reading, listening, and writing
  • the student’s ability to formulate a pedagogical approach to topics appropriate to the student’s career goals
  • a discussion of career options and prospects

The committee shall determine whether the candidate has successfully fulfilled the requirements for the MA degree, and shall confer one of the following grades: distinction, clear pass, marginal pass, or failure. This determination is independent of the student’s candidacy to the PhD program. As in the case of terminal MA students, should the committee determine that the candidate has not been successful, it may recommend that the student be given one additional opportunity to pass the exam during the next academic term.

Master's degree candidates must also fulfill the requirements of the UO Graduate School.
