  • Objectives
    This four year course gives you a good understanding of both management, and Japanese. In the management part of the degree, you will gain a good grounding in the basic principles of management and then use this to specialise in particular areas of management like human resource management, management information systems or marketing. The Japanese side of the course combines intensive study of the Japanese language with a selection of lecture-based modules on Japan and East Asia. A year between the second and third years of the course is spent at one of our partner universities in Japan, providing an excellent opportunity to enhance your language skills and to immerse yourself in Japanese society. The language is taught intensively and covers all the basic skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing. You learn phonetic scripts (kana) from the outset, and learn the roughly 2000 Sino-Japanese characters (kanji) needed over the four years of the course. You encounter over a quarter of these in the first year. By the end of the first year you will have covered most of the core grammar of the language, and from the second year of the course you start to deal with real texts, including newspapers, and you develop compositional, summary, translation and presentational skills. The lecture-based modules cover a range of disciplines. The main focus is on contemporary social sciences, so you can choose modules on contemporary society, minorities, politics, economics, gender, modern history, business management and international relations. There are also some literature-based options, including both modern literature and the pre-modern language. The School of East Asian Studies is one of the main centres for Japanese in Europe, and is one of two universities' departments that constitute the National Centre for Japanese Studies. This course is run jointly with the School of East Asian Studies.
