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.
