International Relations with Japanese - Manchester Metropolitan University

These courses give you the opportunity to study International Relations in combination with a language. You will undertake practical language classes for your minor language, while also developing an understanding of the social and cultural environment in which the language is spoken. In the study of politics, historical background, socioeconomic indicators and ideological imperatives are analysed and cultural, gender and ethnic identities examined. You can study UK politics, political thought and theory, European politics, international politics and security, "issue" politics (for example, politics of hunger, environmentalism or war and peace) and comparative politics. Proficiency in modern languages will give you the competitive edge in the global jobs market. In both the private and public sectors, there is demand for professionals with strong language skills who can work in culturally diverse environments. Japanese: Japanese is spoken by about 125 million people and the number of UK graduates who can communicate in Japanese and write Japanese scripts is limited, so learning the language will give you a competitive edge. Employment in UK enterprises owned by Japanese companies is steadily growing: with more than 120,000 in the UK in 2013 according to the UK Statistics Authority. Admissions at Beginners level only.
