As one of only three college or universities in the state of Ohio to offer a Japanese major and teacher licensure, our rare yet innovative program combines knowledge of the language - both written and spoken - with an understanding of Japan's past, present and future. From the exploration of anime to translation of Japanese books, you will have the opportunity to not only learn the language, but understand and appreciate this fascinating culture and its importance in our world.
Japanese graduates have found success working as translators, business professionals, study abroad coordinators and teachers, both in the United States and abroad.
Students of the Japanese program have also chosen to pursue graduate study at institutions including Kent State University.
