The School of Japanese dates back to 1956 as part of China Foreign Affairs University, which was integrated into the School of Asian and African Studies of Beijing Foreign Studies University in 1962 and officially became an independent department in 1981. It was then upgraded to the School of Japanese and International Studies in November 2018.

The School was authorized to admit MA and PhD students in Japanese language and literature in 1986 and 1993 respectively, thereby making it a forerunner in Japanese teaching and studies in China. In addition, its Japanese language and literature program was designated as a state-level key discipline and awarded as prioritized field of study by Beijing Municipal Government in 2008. In 2013, it began to admit Master of Translation and Interpretation (MTI) students.

The School admits annually 74 undergraduates, 20 master degree candidates, and 3-4 PhD candidates.

The undergraduate teaching is offered at two levels: two classes for beginners enrolled through National College Entrance Examination; and one class for intermediate and advanced learners enrolled directly from key foreign language middle schools nationwide via recommended admission.

Our fundamental teaching philosophy is to develop students’ language competence while equipping them with humanistic literacy and solid grounding in content areas. In particular, we offer courses and seminars on Japanese politics, economy, society and culture to junior and senior students. Besides, students with outstanding academic performance are also encouraged to take dual degree courses for the purpose of nurturing interdisciplinary talents with strong foreign language proficiency.

Our primary goal is to produce graduates with outstanding foreign language background, competent diplomatic and foreign affairs professionals, and inter-disciplinary personnel for leading enterprises.

In terms of international exchange and cooperation, our school has concluded agreements to exchange students with Japanese universities such as Keio University, Waseda University, Kobe University, Sophia University, Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, Tokyo Gakugei University, Aoyama Gakuin University, Rikkyo University, etc. Each year we send around 40 undergraduates and postgraduates to study in Japan as part of the exchange program.
