Prospective undergraduate students should apply to the University of Wisconsin through the online application. The Office of Admissions and Recruitment provides detailed information on the admissions process. If you are a Junior or Senior in high school we encourage you to visit UW-Madison and take a tour with Visit Bucky. If you would like to meet with the department advisor, meet with a current student, visit a language class, or talk to a professor, please contact the department at least two weeks prior to your visit to make arrangements.
You can view requirements for the Asian Languages & Cultures undergraduate programs on the UW Guide page. Each program in Guide also has a sample Four-Year Plan so that students can see how to fit the requirements in four years.
Many students in our programs are able to complete an additional major. With pre-planning and good communication with your advisors, students can be successful in more than one program at UW-Madison.
If you have specific questions about the academic programs in the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures, the undergraduate advisor is happy to meet with you. Please schedule a meeting via e-mail. Meetings will take place in room 1244 Van Hise Hall.
