The Department of Japanology aims to foster specialists on the regions of Japan by incorporating such fields as Japanese history, culture, society, and economy. Through this program, students will acquire a balanced and stereoscopic view of Japan, and various language programs will be provided to enhance language skills.

This major is an interdisciplinary program linked with other pertinent departments and it will lead students to understand Japanese society in more depth and develop a cosmopolitan outlook.

Fostering specialists with knowledge about Japan who have a balanced perspective is highly important, considering it prepares not only for an enhanced Korea-Japan relationship, but also for the future of the entire Northeast Asian region.

In the present society in which Japanology departments are reduced nationwide and only the functional facets of educating the Japanese language is highlighted, the Japanology Department of SungKyunKwan University, the educational center of Korean humanities, has been newly established with aims to foster professionals in Japanese culture and enhance academic and comprehensive understanding.
