Certificate in Japanese
Japanese is spoken by over 400 thousand people in the United States alone, and you'll be one of them, too, by enrolling in Webster's Japanese program. Small, intimate classes help you immerse yourself in the language and its culture.
Webster's expert Japanese professors challenge you to master the language and its literature while helping you make connections that will boost your postgraduate career. No matter what your future goals, a degree and mastery of another language gives you an advantage over your competitors.
Professors are friendly, accessible, and flexible, making sure each student is in position to succeed. The department also employs post-graduate teaching assistants -- younger native speakers who give you the latest insights into Japanese-speaking cultures.
