The Japanese Program offers four full years of language training and a variety of courses in English on Japan's literature, film, and cultural studies. We offer a minor in Japanese Studies. Students may also pursue a self-designed major in Japanese Studies through the Charles Center, or choose the East Asian Studies track in a Global Studies major. See the links at left for more information.
Students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty in courses taught in English and in Japanese. In addition to honors theses, independent study, and faculty-student collaborative research projects, students also have the chance to teach in a closely mentored relationship with faculty in both language and content courses.
