A degree in Japanese can prepare you for and complement many different career paths, such as in education, engineering, business, and more.

Japan, with its unique cultural tradition and modern economic prowess, has been an important geopolitical force throughout modern times. While traditional arts such as tea ceremony, gardening, and architecture have made a strong impact on Western and other cultures, new trends in film (like anime) and the culinary arts, for example, continue to influence global culture.
