Japanese Program

The Japanese program provides students with a solid foundation in the Japanese language by equipping them with strong Japanese listening, speaking, writing, reading and translation skills. Students develop their capabilities by identifying, analyzing and solving practical problems, while providing them with an environment in which to acquire cross-cultural communication skills. The department also requires students to pursue English as a second foreign language. Accordingly, students are required to acquire proficiency in both the Japanese and English languages by obtaining CET-4 or CET-6 certification.

The majority of the graduates from the department work in civil service, international trade and commerce, and interpretation for foreign affairs. Some pursue further studies abroad and some with an outstanding academic record go on to graduate schools at other prestigious institutions across the country with exemptions from entrance examinations upon recommendation by XMU.
