Many undergraduate students in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean who plan to enter the work force immediately upon completing their undergraduate studies find that their language proficiency opens doors to employment in the local travel industry and other internationally oriented businesses.
Language skill courses are aimed at developing a high level of proficiency in both the spoken and written aspects of the languages. Other courses provide both introductory and advanced coverage of the literatures of East Asia and the analysis and description of the languages themselves.
In addition to courses offered on the premises of the university, a number of study abroad opportunities are available for students who wish to round out their linguistic and cultural experiences.

EALL Program Requirements
The university requires a minimum GPA of 2.0 for graduation. A grade of C or better (not C-) in the prerequisite courses is required for continuation (for example, a C- in CHN/JPN/KOR 101 makes a student ineligible for CHN/JPN/KOR 102). Furthermore, only courses with a C (not C-) or above will be counted towards the BA degree as well as the Minor and Certificate. The Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures (EALL) expects the highest possible performance from declared majors. For students in the Minor or Certificate programs, a minimum GPA of 3.0 is required across courses that fulfill those programs. For further information, and to declare a Major, Minor or Certificate, please see the Undergraduate Program Coordinator in Moore Hall 378.
