Elizabethtown, PA, United States
The Japanese major is a product of student enthusiasm and our College’s commitment to non-Western Cultural Heritage education. All E-town College students are required to take at least one non-Western Cultural Heritage class during their four years here. Japanese majors are ahead of the game with an entire major dedicated to exploring the culture and language of Japan.

Overview

E-town College has the only Japanese Major in the central Pennsylvania region, and one of the only fully-fledged Japanese majors in Pennsylvania. If you are looking for a smaller school, or one closer to home, with a major in Japanese then make E-town your new home away from home! With faculty who are devoted to our students, short-term and year-long study abroad options, and special interest and cultural clubs on campus, your interest in Japanese language and culture can thrive here.

Programme Structure

Yes, you can! We aim to develop competence in Japanese through a series of eight language courses and a year-long study abroad in Japan. If you have had any Japanese before, we would suggest taking our placement test to place yourself at a higher level in the program. We focus on the development of all four skills of communications: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. E-town measures student competencies on an internationally trusted and employed assessment tool: the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT).
