Arabic and Japanese - University of Leeds

Learn two major world languages from scratch and deepen your understanding of the modern world by exploring the history and culture of the nations that speak them on this fascinating 5-year course. You will have the opportunity to spend two years abroad, with a year in Japan and another in an Arabic speaking country, which will provide you with invaluable first-hand experience of the languages and let you fully immerse yourself in the cultures of the regions. Arabic is a vital language for understanding societies in the Middle East and the Islamic world while Japan plays an important role on the global stage and is one of the world’s largest economies. If you’ve never studied either of the languages before, this degree will allow you to learn them from scratch. A combination of core and optional modules will give you a firm grounding in the languages while you study the topics that suit your interests including translation to Japanese cinema, Sino-Japanese relations, East Asian religions, Islamic thought, Arabic culture and Middle Eastern history.
