Japanese is one of 11 international languages offered at Saddleback College. A Japanese degree provides students with more positive attitudes and less prejudice toward people who are different teaches and encourages respect for other peoples. It also fosters an understanding of the interrelation of language and human nature, appreciation of other ways of life, different systems of belief, and different way of constructing knowledge, and perhaps most importantly, a better understanding of the world in which they live.
Students develop cognitive and creative thinking skills and acquire increased understanding of another culture. Whatever your career path, a major or double major in a language can be a wise and practical choice.
