The Department of East Asian Studies participates in the Faculty of Arts and Science’s Language Citation initiative for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. The study of any of these
languages is a challenging and time consuming endeavour, which offers rich rewards for students interested in the cultures, societies, and economies of East Asia.
In each language the Language Citation recognizes a significant level of achievement in language study with a high level of academic success. The language citation will consist of a notation on the transcript that reads: “Completed Requirements of Language Citation in [name of language].”
The Language Citation recognizes a significant level of achievement in language study with a high level of academic success. The Language Citation is available to students who achieve a B- or above in 2.0 FCEs beyond the first-year course in a language. The following courses count towards a Language Citation:
Chinese – EAS200Y1, EAS201H1, EAS300Y1, EAS401H1, EAS402H1
Japanese – EAS220Y1, EAS320Y1, EAS460H1, EAS461H1
Korean – EAS210Y1, half a credit of EAS211Y1, EAS212H1, EAS310Y1, EAS410Y1, and EAS416Y1
Students should note that the Language Citation is not equivalent to an academic program and that enrolment in a program is not necessary in order to earn the recognition
bestowed by the Citation. If you believe that have met the requirements of the Citation and would like to request that the notation be added to your transcript, please email Natasja VanderBerg. Please include your student number and a list of language courses you have taken in your email.
