Where will this take me?


The Japanese Societies minor will help you cultivate ‘soft skills’ of cultural and societal literacy and skills in cross-cultural communications and analysis vital to many occupational sectors.

In particular, this minor will prepare you to work in diverse fields where Japan has a major presence such as IT, engineering, finance, arts, architecture, agribusiness and many more. It is also excellent preparation for entry into professional areas such as government departments, teaching and research. Being able to understand how Japan fits into and impacts both Asia and the global community, you’ll be able to engage in global discourses about Japan, the Asian and Australian regions – an invaluable asset in today’s global job market.
