Are you into Japanese manga, anime, novels, films, games, technology, cuisines or Tokyo fashion?  Perhaps creators such as Miyazaki Hayao or Murakami Haruki?  Find your own version of “cool Japan” by learning the language. Students in the Japanese majors learn all aspects of the Japanese language and concentrate on developing practical communicative competence in Japanese. A wide range of topics including Japanese Media and Japanese Society are covered within the course structure and interactive face to face classroom activities are combined with computer assisted language learning (CALL). You even get to have real-time communications with Japanese people on chat line as part of the course. ECU’s Japanese exchange programs also enable you to explore both modern and traditional Japan by studying at one of the exchange partner universities. The completion of ECU’s dynamic Japanese major will definitely give you better opportunities to widen your career perspectives.

 

There is a special condition for entry into the Japanese Majors or Minors: Native speakers of Japanese who have completed their compulsory education in Japan and/or in a Japanese educational institution overseas (i.e., six years at primary and three years at junior high school) are not eligible to enrol in a Japanese Major or Minor.
