The rapid expansion of economy and modernization in Japan brings about significant development of Japanese studies. Japanese studies doesn’t merely focus on language skill but also Japanese culture, society, history, as well as Japanese thought and ideas.
Furthermore, Japan has become Indonesia’s trading partner since the 1970s and has now become the most important partner in Indonesia’s national establishment. For this reason, Japanese studies graduates who have ample skill in spoken Japanese and profound understanding of culture and any other relevant aspects are highly needed. The world is now more globalized and there is a higher demand for individuals with not only language skill but also the understanding of Japanese culture and ideas.
The department of Japanese studies has a bachelor degree that offers high quality academic in Japanese studies covering not only the study of language and literature but all relevant aspects such as philosophy, politics, sociology, history, and culture.
