With 127 million speakers, Japanese is one of the most spoken languages in the world. Earning a minor or certificate in Japanese is the great way to learn the language and study the culture of Japan -- an added benefit to any academic program.
The Japanese civilization extends back more than 1,200 years; its contributions to global culture include art, poetry and the world's first novel. Today Japan is the world's second-largest economy, making vital contributions to science and technology. As a Japanese major, you will first build a strong foundation in the Japanese language, then cultivate an understanding of Japanese literature and civilization. You will gain perspective and context about Japanese culture from classes in Japanese history and anthropology. You may choose to study in Japan with a wide range of education abroad programs, ranging from a year in Tokyo to one month in Kyoto.
Emory's courses in the Japanese program enable students to achieve a high level of familiarity with the language and culture of Japan. Our curriculum offers elementary through advanced language training as well as a broad range of elective courses. Classes in the areas of Japanese literature, gender and sexuality, and cultural studies supplement the language classes and prepare our students for a wide range of careers in the global economy of the 21st century.
