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 will develop the linguistic and analytical skills to engage critically, and in a truly interdisciplinary way, with this dynamic society. You will also learn about Japan's place in East Asia, now one of the world's most important and influential regions. **Japanese at the University of Edinburgh**Edinburgh is the only university in Scotland to offer undergraduate honours degrees in Japanese. Our programme has been carefully designed around the goal of making you an expert on Japan. It introduces skills and knowledge step by step, and we encourage you to see the connections between language, history, politics, culture and international relations at every stage.
