Course summary

The School of East Asian Studies at Sheffield is well known for its excellent language training. We teach Japanese from scratch, so you don’t need previous experience. And you will be taught by native speakers in small groups. This intensive teaching is balanced with modules on Japan’s rich culture, its political influence, and its economy. You will spend your third year at one of our many partner universities in Japan.The Department of History, where you will spend roughly half your time, is one of the UK’s best, ranked 3rd in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. The history modules are designed to complement your Japanese studies and you’ll get chance to work on projects like the New Histories blog that bring history to life.The course is a bold first step towards a career in South East Asia. All over Europe there are great opportunities for graduates who understand the region, its languages and cultures. Our graduates work in government and diplomacy, media, the arts, and international business.
