Our program provides a well-rounded foundation in Japanese language, culture, literature, linguistics, art, history, religion, and business.
The four-year curriculum is designed to develop your Japanese language proficiency from the Novice to Intermediate and Advanced levels (based on the ACTFL standards). Classes are small, and instructors pay individual attention to your progress, enhanced by native-speaking tutors. Upper-division courses are content-based, and they explore the diverse regions of Japan, in light of their distinctive histories and cultures. Classes are also complemented by Robo-Sensei, an award-winning artificial intelligence program that allows you to practice their language skills and receive immediate feedback.
