Institute of Japanese Studies Launched at UCC

University College Cork (UCC) marked a further milestone in its expansion in field of Asian Studies last week with the official inauguration of the Irish Institute of Japanese Studies. This pioneering institute is the first of its kind in Ireland and reflects the close links  that UCC pursued with Asia from the 1850s.  The Institute of Japanese Studies aims to offer students a new international perspective on Japan, combining cultural and linguistic studies. This not only will enhance mutual understanding between the two countries, but hopes to foster new research networks and degree programmes and thus compliment UCC’s existing strengths in the field of Asian Studies.
