The Union College interdepartmental major in Japanese, offered through the Department of Modern Languages and Literature, gives students a solid foundation in Japanese language and culture with classes in basic, intermediate and advanced Japanese.

Union offers a fall term abroad in Osaka through an exchange program with Kansai-Gaidai University. Students take intensive courses in written and spoken Japanese and have additional opportunities to improve language skills by staying with a host family.

Because there are so many ways to make connections across disciplines at Union, you might be inspired to study Japanese culture and by taking a visual arts class in Edo prints and printmaking.

As a student of Japanese, you can become involved in a number of academic, arts, cultural and social events on campus, including art exhibits, Japanese Language Tableculinary activities and films.Careers
