Japan studies at AU

Despite losing its economic leading position in Asia, Japan continues to fascinate people around the globe.

Japan Studies at Aarhus University aims to understand contemporary issues through multiple disciplines – specifically, history, sociology, and political science. The program’s language-based approach places a high emphasis on Japanese proficiency, which serves as a central tool in the analyses of the various disciplines. Furthermore, the program offers a unique opportunity to study and experience Japan firsthand at one of the numerous partner universities in Japan.

Japan Studies at Aarhus University will provide you with essential skills, which will not only enable you to experience Japan and interact with its culture and people. You will also have the opportunity to acquire important analytical and communication skills valued beyond the field of Japanese Studies – both within the public and the private sector.
