Although a foreign language like Japanese can be intimidating to many students, Westminster is a great place to thrive in this area due to its small class sizes, its emphasis on practical application of your studies, and its dedicated faculty who is willing to help you on a one-on-one basis. While Japan is rich with culture far older than many Western countries, it is also now a major player in global markets and politics. Studying Japanese will enhance your understanding of the fascinating Land of the Rising Sun and will open your eyes to a whole new perspective.
Professor Takashi Ibira has infused our Japanese program for the past two years. He has expanded the Japanese classes to the second-year level and ambitiously envisions the possibility where Westminster can offer a minor in Japanese.
