IU South Bend currently offers four years of study in the Japanese language and culture. Additionally, we also teach a summer course, EALC-E 271 in English on Japanese cultural traditions. Although WLS does not offer a degree in Japanese, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers a minor in East Asian Languages and Cultures. A requirement of this minor will be four semesters of study in an Asian language.
Japanese Foreign Study Programs
The department anticipates offering a study abroad course in the near future, led by IU South Bend faculty, which would give students a chance to study and travel in Japan. Currently, students can study at University in Nagoya on an IU administered program or in Tokyo on an IES program through IU.
