Japanese is Central!

Everything you need to know about the Japanese Program at Central Washington University!

The goal of the Japanese language program at CWU is to guide students through the process of learning Japanese and in doing so to foster an appreciation of Japanese culture and history. In a broad sense, our program endeavors to help our students develop broadened intellectual horizons, an understanding of themselves, and improved communication and thinking skills, all through the study of the Japanese language.
