The Department of Jewish, Islamic, and Middle Eastern Studies offers a minor in South Asian Languages and Cultures. As minors in South Asian Languages and Cultures, students can expect to gain proficiency in Hindi/Urdu languages, study the area's literary and cultural landmarks, and gain familiarity with Indian history and civilizations.

Language Placement: Placement tests are required for all students entering our language programs. Students may be eligible for up to 6 units of back credit based on advanced placement and successful completion of the recommended course. Native speakers are not eligible for back credit; evidence of secondary or postsecondary study of the language is required. Any units received from back credit cannot be counted toward the minor.
