ようこそ！ Yookoso – Welcome!
Japan is one of the world's major players in global economics, politics and renewable energy. The Japanese are innovators, designers, and creative engineers in cultural exports, and Japan is increasingly emerging as a point of origin for American pop culture. Earning a minor in Japanese at Eckerd is an incredibly fun experience and a wise career choice. Here are a few reasons why:
- Communicating in another language is an essential element of a well-rounded education. Skill in a foreign language provides you with a strong asset to become a global citizen.
- Japan is an ideal study-abroad destination.
- Opportunity to be a member of the Japanese National Honor Society.
- Learning Japanese helps you gain an enhanced perspective of your own language and culture.
