Welcome to the Japanese program!

The Japanese program at Utah Valley University offers various courses in language, business Japanese and culture. We have a one-on-one tutoring system that supports student's success in language learning.

Pair Japanese with an additional language of your choosing! This minor can be earned in conjunction with any Bachelor degree major that UVU offers. It requires 9 cr upper division course work in one language and 11 cr of intermediate level course work in another language (prerequisites will vary from student to student).
