Course Description

As we start the 21st century, worldwide interest in global cultures has grown.

In this course, we will focus on the culture of Japan, and its interactions with the United States, examining the following areas of the Japanese experience: cultural history, cultural patterns, world view, religion, language, education, art, architecture, drama, traditional sports, and contemporary issues in Japan.
