Students may pursue a Japanese Studies Composite Major by combining courses taken at Hope with a variety of off-campus study opportunities. Such a major would be an integrated program of language and culture leading to fluency in the language, a high level of understanding of and experience in Japanese culture, as well as a specialized field of study of the student’s own choosing.

This major will permit the student to prepare for forms of employment in which a knowledge of Japanese and familiarity with Asian cultures is required.

The Japanese Composite Major consists of a minimum of 28 credits of work divided between:

  • Japanese language study, a minimum of 16 credits at JAPN 201  and higher
