The department's goal is to equip students with intermediate to advanced level of proficiency in Japanese. In addition to basic language skill training such as listening, speaking, ading, writing, and translating, the department also offers relevant courses in trade, business, secretarial skills, and tourism. These are designed to broaden student's business learning. The department particularly focuses on assisting students to pass Japanese language proficiency tests. To help students put into practice what they have learned; the department has cooperative programs with industry. Also, academic cooperative programs with Japanese universities are currently being established. These programs will include a student exchange program. Through these exchanges, students will have a better understanding of Japanese culture and society and improve their Japanese language skills. This is necessary for further studies and job placement.
