Japan is the third largest national economy in the world, and about 125 million people speak Japanese worldwide. Our Japanese course sequence is designed to help you become proficient in Japanese and find a practical application for Japanese in your individual area of study.
Who the Japanese Language Program Is For
Learning Japanese has great practical advantages for many fields, most notably in the field of business. Our Japanese program is ideal for students interested in exploring other cultures or specializing their studies in global markets or politics.
Japanese courses aim to give students practical tools for communicating in written and spoken Japanese and deepen their knowledge and appreciation of Japanese culture. The study of Japanese will broaden the international horizons of liberal arts students and will be of great value in many professions and enterprises (business, trade, politics, travel, history, and literature).
