About us

About this blog:

This blog began as a collective effort of Gettysburg College students who graduated with a B.A. in Japanese Studies, and has expanded to include bloggers from other institutions and companies who have been in the Japan field. We’re blogging about our various experiences involving graduate school, living abroad, Japan study, searching for employment, etc. and posting announcements for Japan-related events, conferences, and jobs to give undergrads and those who have already graduated an idea of what the heck you can do after getting a B.A. in this field. It is our goal to provide helpful advice and a variety of resources to enable students and former students of Japanese to continue their study, plan for employment, and make informed decisions about the vague and imposing question: What am I doing next?

About Japanese Studies at Gettysburg College:

Gettysburg College offers a Japanese Studies major and minor which are interdisciplinary in nature. Areas of study within the degree include the language, culture, literature, history, art, film, music, theatre, religion, and politics of Japan. Students typically study abroad with an affiliated program at Kansai Gaidai University, located in Hirakata City, near Osaka. Gettysburg College prides itself on its small campus atmosphere but extensive resources, which enable students to work more intimately with professors and their fellow students, forming strong bonds that facilitate their educational experience.
