Japanese Program

Overview of the Japanese Language Program

The Japanese Program offers a vibrant community that engages students in active learning and a variety of extracurricular activities. Students develop communication skills in both spoken and written Japanese as well as knowledge of Japanese cultural and literary traditions. By taking courses in all levels of Japanese language, literature, and culture and spending a semester at a Japanese university, students hone their language skills and deepen their understanding of Japanese culture and society. The goal of the Japanese Program is to help students succeed in professional and personal interactions with Japan after graduation. Former students have gone on to teach English in Japan, work at Japanese companies and the Japanese embassy.
