Have a textbook or grammar book that you find particularly helpful? What about a learning tip to share with others?

Universities in US where we can study Japanese?

Postby qLauraQ » Thu 09.05.2013 1:21 pm

Is there a list somewhere on this site or in this forum already, or perhaps we could start a list? I have found three universities where one can study Japanese and major in something like International Studies/Business/Politics in my state, and one has an established year-long exchange program. I'm sure there are more. Perhaps we could help each other out by sharing lists of schools we've found and share what courses, majors, minors, internships, and exchange programs they have?

James Madison University in VA has a study abroad program. I cannot recall if they actually have classes. George Mason University has/had classes up to upper beginner/2nd year Japanese( basically, the end of Genki II) and you had to do study abroad to go further. Although it has been years since I looked at these. I believe there was a university in Nevada that had Japanese as a major though the previous two just had the classes for electives. I would imagine that the further you go towards the U.S. west coast the easier it would be to find Japanese classes but that is just a guess.

The University of Wyoming appears to have language classes through the 4th year, along with some independent study.
