As the world’s third-largest economy, Japan plays a prominent role in U.S. trade, economic policy, and cultural exchange. It’s an alliance that’s generating career opportunities abroad, but to succeed, it takes a commitment to master the language and embrace the customs.

The Japanese Studies program at the University of San Francisco offers a diverse curriculum, where possible classes include international business, Zen philosophy, language and even anime film. Classes are small, enhanced by native-speaking tutors and complemented by Robo-Sensei, an award-winning artificial intelligence program that allows students to practice their language skills and receive immediate feedback. We also support exchange programs at Sophia University in Tokyo and Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, two of the premier schools in Japan. Together, these unique resources equip graduates with the communication skills and real-world experience necessary for successful careers in one of the world’s largest economies.
