In response to the social and industrial development needs of Applied Japanese professionals, the Department of Applied Japanese was established in 2003 . Distinct from traditional Japanese departments, our department isaimed at equipping students not only with a good command of Japanese skills but also the knowledge of finance and business. The department provides professional Japanese lessons based on five skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and translating.
The department aims to equip our students with language skills, professional knowledge and service ethics. Thus we require students to have strong language capabilities, while also require students to have professionalcapability other than Japanese professions. Besides to enhance students' employability and competitiveness, our Department support students with intensive tutoring to achieve "Japanese Language Proficiency test", English Proficiency Test (GEPT, etc.), and other professional licenses (such as Japanese tour leader license, etc.).In addition, to help students understand and experience the workplace, the job placement counseling seminars (career series) and Campus-off Practice are well arranged. Last, we expect students to apply an Japanese related jobs immediately, and to become the backbone of the company they serve.
