Two courses (6 hours) of electives in any East Asian field are required. See an advisor for help choosing courses.

Typically Goal 6 is fulfilled using a course required by the major. Review the list of Goal 6 courses that may apply to the major, or choose another course. A free elective may need to be used to fulfill pre-requisites if a course within the major is not chosen. 

Please note:

All students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are required to completed 120 total hours of which 45 hours must be at the Jr/Sr (300+) level, and 100 hours must be from within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

The same course cannot be used to fulfill more than one KU Core Goal. However, overlap of a KU Core course with a major or degree-specific requirement is allowed. Overlapping is recommended to allow more opportunities to explore other majors and/or minors.
