Introduction to Japanese Studies at Cambridge

Japanese is a complex and fascinating language, which allows you to access and fully comprehend the rich culture of a country that plays a considerable role in the international community and that constitutes the world’s third-largest economy.

Our courses offer you the opportunity to learn this language to an advanced level, alongside in-depth understanding of Japan: its history, its culture and its society within the wider region of East Asia.

We also encourage the development of transferrable skills, including the development of​ critical thinking and a variety of written and oral communication skills.
