Welcome to the University of Toledo Japanese Section of the Department of Foreign Languages.

* To fulfill the University of Toledo's foreign language core requirements in Japanese the following courses are required: 1110, 1120, 2140, and 2150. *

* To complete the Japanese language minor program a student must accumulate at least 22 Japanese course credit hours above the 2000-level. *
