Italian Studies The Japanese program offers a solid foundation in the Japanese language. It also introduces students to many facets of Japanese culture, covering ancient, medieval, modern, and postmodern periods. Our focus is primarily on literature, film, popular culture, and anime. We enjoy close links with International Literary and Visual Studies and with International Relations. Our major prepares students for careers not only in academics but also in business, law, diplomacy, or technology, where the knowledge of Japanese language and culture is a valuable asset. For those interested in teaching careers, we offer a teaching internship which leads to a provisional education certificate. The major in Japanese requires nine courses beyond Japanese 4, plus one in a related field. Those who place out of Japanese language courses still need to complete ten approved courses: Language requirement: four courses beyond Japanese 4; continuation to Japanese 123, 124 strongly recommended. Japanese 61 and four additional literature/culture courses from the Japanese offerings in the department. Two of these courses must be at the 100 level, including one seminar. If qualified, a student may opt to do an Honors Thesis (Japanese 198, 199) instead of a seminar. Only one course with a half Japanese content, such as JPN 84, can count toward the major. 0ne course in Japanese culture offered by another department and approved by the program director.
