I've got a bit of a problem. I'm thinking about dropping one of my language classes (Japanese or Latin), but I don't know which one to drop. See, at Mason, so far you can't major or minor in Japanese, so I would know it, and it would fulfill my languge requirement, but I couldn't really DO anything with it. Latin, on the other hand, you CAN minor in, but I'm not even sure if I want to do that. See, I like Latin because it's cool to figure out where words came from, since it's the base of the Romance languages and all, but I don't really want to take Roman Poetry and all of that other stuff...
And right now, there's this Asian American Women Writers literature course that I'm kinda interested in taking, but it's at the same time as my Japanese class. So I can't decide if I should drop Japanese and take that ('cause I still need another literature credit), or if I should keep going with both languages, or what...

Is that Asian literature class a one-time deal? Because if it is, I'd say definitely go with it. If it's once a year, though... you could always take it after you run out of Japanese classes to take?

As far as Latin v. Japanese, if it's really just an issue of, "There's a Latin minor but not a Japanese one," I'd like to say that future interviewers would prize actual skill over a piece of paper saying you have that skill.
I guess what I'm saying is that I wouldn't let "No minor!" stop me from taking Japanese, if I really want to take it.

Hope that helped even a little bit... :X

Yeah, it did help. Thanks. Still haven't decided yet, but it's always good to get other people's opinions. ^_^
