Japanese is a fascinating language that comprises several written systems and is spoken by 135 million people worldwide.

Japan is not only one of Australia’s top three trade partners; it is a gateway to Asian nations that are diverse, rapidly changing and rich with opportunities.

This double degree major is designed to provide you with a high level of literacy in Japanese and an advanced understanding of Japanese culture.
