Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures


There are many reasons to study Japanese: it helps you gain an enhanced perspective on your own language and culture; it builds brain power by fostering analytical, observational, critical thinking, and dexterity skills; it teaches an appreciation for everything from language to native craftsmanship to film and food; and it’s a valuable asset for future careers. In addition to a minor in Japanese, students can join the Japan Club, the Ramnime Club, and connect with the Japanese Student Association for opportunities to make friends, explore cultural activities, and participate in field trips.
