Choose to study in Kobe, Tokyo, Fukuoka or Akita – four very different parts of the country with diverse experiences to offer. Join one of our dynamic student clubs to share your interests with others, whether it be martial arts, language study with native speakers, or a deeper engagement with the Japanese art forms of manga, anime and videogames. Our program allows you to specialize in film, literature or pop culture while advancing your language skills and learning more about current events. You will graduate with a firm grasp of what life in Japan is really like and how Japanese culture makes an impact on our world every day.
We look forward to meeting you and making your undergraduate years rewarding, challenging and stimulating – come and study Japanese at UD!
