Welcome to the chair for Japanese Language and Literature

In teaching, we offer a Bachelor's and a Master's degree course in Japanese Studies in cooperation with the chair for Japanese History, as well as a Master of Education degree course in Japanese. The chair is also responsible for the Japanese language classes that form part of other degree courses at the Faculty of East Asan Studies. In research, our focus is on the history of the Japanese language and of writing in Japan, as well as adjacent areas.
