Complex, unique, endlessly fascinating, Japan embraces modernity and technology while maintaining its rich traditional culture. To truly understand Japan, you have to experience it. You have to immerse yourself in it.
We teach Japanese intensively, from scratch. You will study the phonetic scripts (kana) from the outset, picking up the 2000 Sino-Japanese characters (kanji) over the course of your degree. Other modules cover contemporary society, literature, politics, economics, gender, modern history, business management and international relations.
Most importantly, you will spend your third year studying at one of our partner universities in Japan. More than just a chance to put what you’ve learned into practice, this year is an experience you won’t forget.
Energised and inspired, you’ll return to Sheffield for your final year. The language training continues, now at a more advanced level. Supervised by an academic, you’ll research and write a dissertation on a topic of your choice.
