Compared to Japanese language and literature study, Japanese studies is a discipline that has a new approach to Japan. Japanese Studies is a comprehensive study, Regional Studies, that is not limited to 'literary studies' but is a combination of humanities (history, literature, cultural anthropology) and social sciences (political science, economics, sociology). Japan is our geographically closest neighbor, but shares a history of work and sorrow. It is also one of the worlds most powerful nations that is prospering. Accordingly, Japan's national strategy, political choices, and socio-cultural lifestyle have a big impact on us as well. Especially, it is a very important issue for us to study and understand Japan and to establish a desirable relationship between the continent and the ocean. The Department of Japanese Studies aims not only to cultivate fluent language skills but also to study Japan in a comprehensive way through politics, economy, society, culture, history, etc. and ultimately strive to practice desirable bilateral relations.
The Department of Japanese Studies is committed to fostering young, vibrant, and promising Japanese regional experts, international experts, and practitioners of international commerce who are fluent in Japanese and foreign languages and are well versed in international relations in Japan and East Asia.
The Department of Japanese Studies has the best faculty for the systematic study of Japan. The curriculum is largely divided into language & culture and regional studies. First, the 'Linguistic Area' focuses on cultivating the ability to speak, read, and write with a focus on the practical ability of Japanese language. The sophomores are provided with intensive training to acquire basic Japanese language skills. Students in their junior and senior years use Japanese texts and reference materials in their regional studies courses or listen to lectures in Japanese, so they can naturally hone their language skills in their learning environment. The 'Regional Studies' area offers core courses in Japanese studies in areas such as history, politics, economics, society, and culture. As a summer class, Keisen Women's University in Tokyo offers language programs I and II. Another important feature of the curriculum is found in the
The Department of Japanese Studies at Hanshin University teaches students to grow into Japanese experts who have fluency in language skills based on comprehensive and deepened knowledge of Japanese society. Also, we lead the students to grow into practical development cooperation experts who have cultural literacy and practical application skills. Furthermore, through systematic research and education in consideration of the Korean, East Asian, and global contexts, we foster future-oriented Asian regional experts who will lead the development of our society and the peace and prosperity of the international community in the future.
