Would it work?

Since I'm going to school for Anthropology and I want to focus on Japanese Anthropology, I know that it's a bit hard to do that unless I actually go and study in Japan which is a little hard for me mainly because of financial reasons, could I do a double major in Anthropology and Japanese history/culture or should I do a minor in Japanese history and culture?  Would it even work?

It would work, but if you're looking to an archaeological program, as you mentioned in the other thread, then you really want a program that has a Japanese archaeology component. Alternatively, you could look for a university that has an exchange program and do some study abroad that way.

I was thinking about the exchange program too, but I kind of disregarded it because I would have to know more of the language I would think to be able to do it/understand everything that I'll need to know. Plus, I don't know if it's covered with my schooling or if I'll have to pay extra for it.

H.H.,

All those are questions that should be asked of both the Department Chair, and an academics guidance councilor.

I wouldn't stress being fluent in Japanese in order to do exchange; that is part of the reason exchanges are made - to improve your language skill.

You will have to be able to demonstrate a language skill in your field of study for graduation I presume. Japanese is actually not that difficult to study and learn - Chinese is much more difficult.

I know Japanese isn't all too difficult to learn. I already completed my 2 years of a language in ninth and tenth grade and I took Japanese. It's not hard, but some things are a little difficult. I just want to be able to know a bit more than I do because I know that I have lost some of my skill in it due to not taking it for two years.
