Description

Japanese studies units are taught in English and most require no language prerequisites (with the exception of units in the linguistics stream). They are open to all students and may be taken as part of a major or minor in Japanese language or studies, as part of a major in Asian studies, or on their own.

A first-year sequence in Japanese studies provides a broad introduction to a number of aspects of Japanese culture and society, and the broader Asian context. In second and third year, a variety of units are available in history, society and culture, and linguistics and communication. All Japanese studies students are encouraged to also enrol in Japanese language units.

Units

Students studying a sequence in Japanese studies must complete two units (12 points) from the following:

For the purposes of a minor/major, a first-year sequence in Japanese studies can be replaced by a first-year sequence in any first-year Japanese language stream or a combination of any Japanese language unit in first semester and HSY1050 or JPS1090.
