Program Description:

Canterbury's programmes in Foreign Languages and Linguistics are ranked first in New Zealand (The NZ Government's Tertiary Education Commission's latest Performance Based Research Fund quality assessment). The Japanese Programme at Canterbury University is large and wide-ranging, catering for students' diverse backgrounds and vocational and academic needs. It offers a broad range of subjects at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, including language, literature, culture, geography, history, sociology, gender studies, theatre studies and cross-cultural psychology. Courses in the Programme are complemented by a number of specialised courses on Japanese history and music offered through the School of History and the School of Music respectively, and courses with some Japanese content in the Schools of Philosophy and Religious Studies, and Political Science and Communication.

Please note that international students only pay domestic fees for study at PhD level.
