The Diploma of Japanese Studies (DJAST) is centred on a core of compulsory papers that emphasise the development of a firm foundation in Japanese language skills. An understanding of traditional and contemporary Japanese culture, modern society, politics and business. Graduates will have mastered the basics of the Japanese language and have gained a platform for the study of Japanese language at higher levels leading to employment.
Graduates may cross-credit their DJAST into the first year of the Bachelor of Contemporary International Studies.
The course enables graduates who have a Bachelors degree and are already working in Japanese-owned firms or enterprises to better understand the Japanese work ethos and communicate with their Japanese colleagues.
The course lays the foundations for future careers in translation, interpretation, or any job in Japanese enterprises. It is also very helpful for graduates who have appropriate teaching qualifications either to teach Japanese in an Anglophone country, or to teach English in a Japanese context.
The Diploma of Japanese Studies (DJAST) includes a total of eight papers at level 5 or above. To complete your DJAST you must include four core Japanese language papers, and four elective papers from the lists below.
