Japanese is “a mirror language of English,” grammatically and socioculturally. So learning Japanese at Truman will open your eyes linguistically, culturally, and intellectually.
You can pursue elementary, intermediate and advanced Japanese, even continuing to fourth-year Japanese. Additional courses on Japanese culture, society and the language will enrich your learning.
Discover Connections Abroad
Immerse yourself in Japanese-speaking environments for a semester, for an entire academic year or over the summer. You can choose your destination from among the Tokyo area representing “Cool Japan,” the Kansai area with Japan’s traditional cultural center, and more.
See the study abroad office for more information.
Preparing For Lives That Matter
You can further your pursuit of Japanese studies by taking related courses in art, philosophy and religion, history, literature, economics, political science and geography. You may choose to declare an Asian Studies minor or an Interdisciplinary Studies major in Japanese studies. Truman has a highly vibrant Anime Club, and the Japanese Language Exchange Group (JLEG) serves for language and cultural exchanges with students from Japan.
Truman offers a wide variety of opportunities in classrooms, on campus, and abroad to pursue your intellectual or passionate interest in Japan.
