University Majors

University of California, Santa Barbara
Japanese B.A.

The Japanese program offers courses in the languages, literature, religion, history and culture of Japan. Courses covering the history of Japanese literature, religion and culture to the present are conducted on the basis of translated material and take account of the climate of thought and opinion affecting the content of texts. Several other courses focus on cultural and social themes in modern and contemporary society. In short, the Japanese program teaches language as a medium of practical communication as well as literary creativity, while treating both language and literature within their cultural, political and social context. By studying Japanese, students achieve a greater awareness of East Asia's rich and ancient civilizations.
