Course summary

Over the past 150 years, Japan has experienced change at breakneck pace, but has nevertheless retained its fascinating cultural heritage. Study with us and you’ll develop the linguistic and analytical skills to engage critically with this dynamic society. On this programme, you’ll benefit from the same Japanese language training as our MA (Hons) Japanese students, but will be able to focus your studies on the social scientific understanding of language. Language classes are active, innovative, inclusive, and always informed by the best practice in the field. Edinburgh is the only university in Scotland to offer undergraduate honours degrees in Japanese and our programme has been carefully designed around the goal of making you an expert on Japan. Through studying Linguistics, you will also learn how language is acquired, produced and understood; how it functions in interaction between individuals and in society; about its abstract structure and representation in the brain; and how it changes over time A highlight of the programme is the opportunity to study abroad and experience Japanese culture firsthand. You will spend Year 3 studying in Japan.
