Why Choose Japanese?
From anime and manga to karaoke and Hello Kitty, Japanese culture is hugely influential worldwide. And as the world’s third largest economy, Japan is a powerhouse in global affairs and international business. Whether you have a love for Kurosawa or want to get a leg up in the business world, minoring in Japanese will give you language skills and cultural knowledge to succeed.
The Classroom Experience
In addition to courses focusing on grammar, composition and conversation, Japanese classes provide an introduction to Japanese culture and history, providing a well-rounded education.
Our small class size allows you to develop language competency as well as establish a close relationship with your professor.
