Are you passionate about Japan Studies and looking for a way to transform your knowledge of its culture and language? Embarking on a Japanese Studies degree course at Oxford Brookes means you’ll be:
- Learning all about Japanese history and culture
- Dissecting the intricacies of interesting topics such as Japanese manga and anime
- Sharpening your Japanese oral and written skills
- Spending a year studying or working in Japan.
- international commerce
- the Diplomatic Service.
Year 1 covers the Japanese language from beginners’, GCSE or post-GCSE level as well as the compulsory module Introduction to Japanese Society and Culture. Optional introductory modules in arts, business, computing or social anthropology act as preparation for advanced work. Year 2 provides further language practice combined with modules that allow more detailed study of the arts, culture and society of Japan. Year 3 is spent studying at a Japanese university as an exchange student. We currently have ten link universities based in Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Shikoku and Kitakyushu. The intensive language courses and lectures you receive will complement your studies at Oxford Brookes. Year 4 will build on your fluency and range of expressions acquired while abroad. Modules focus on specific aspects of Japanese life, institutions and culture and an active Japan interest group organises regular talks, films and cultural activities.
