about the Program in Japanese as a Foreign Language
Established in 2008, the Program in Japanese as a Foreign Language aims to provide a high quality of Japanese language courses, train specialist talent such as Japanese language editors and translators in Japanese language and culture. The program provides an opportunity for students to learn a different foreign language, with the skills learned enhancing students’ competitiveness in the workplace, earning them job opportunities as editors, interpreters, and translators, or work in mass media, tourism, finance, or technology. In the future, students may also choose to advance their studies in a graduate institute of the Japanese language. The Japanese program has become one of the most popular programs at NTNU. In 2016, the College of Liberal Arts worked with the Faculty of Foreign Language Studies, Kansai University to conduct an overseas Japanese Teaching Practicum.
