Albion College offers introductory and intermediate Japanese courses, which focus on linguistic skills as well as cultural understanding of Japanese people and society. Between classroom instruction and cultural activities outside the classroom, students have ample opportunity to participate in frequent, real-time language practice. These activities can focus on many different aspects of Japanese language and culture, such as calligraphy, movies, cooking, martial arts, anime, etc.. A number of Albion students each year participate in exchange programs with Japan's premier institutions Waseda University and Sophia University.
