SUMMARY

A degree in Japanese Language and Literature is a valuable choice and often an obligatory first step for students hoping to enter a career as a purchasing agent, a political consultant, or an international tax consultant. Interestingly, japanese language and literature is a very rare degree coming in at the 244th most popular area of study. Last academic year, there were 728 japanese language and literature diplomas received. In-state tuition for japanese language and literature at private colleges is, on average, 4 times more spendy than their public counterparts.

With just 94 institutions having programs for this degree there might be a more finite list of the institutions that will have an option for you. If you are looking to surround yourself with other japanese language and literature majors, consider schools in California which have the most undergraduates admitted to japanese language and literature annually. More generally, the top region to major in japanese language and literature is in the Far West region with University of California-Davis, University of Hawaii at Manoa, and University of Oregon best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the best conference to study japanese language and literature is the Pacific-12 Conference with University of Colorado Boulder, University of Oregon, and University of Washington-Seattle Campus representing the conference. On that topic, our choice for the best school for japanese language and literature is Washington University in St Louis. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The overall 'best' school does not have to be the best school for you. There are tons of perspectives to consider when deciding on ​university. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would definitely impact your choice on where to go to university. Here at Authority, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are intrigued by which japanese language and literature school boasts the best college campus, the answer is University of California-Los Angeles. If you are mostly interested in which school boasts the top campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, professor reviews, government databases, and more in order to compare every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life and, from that list, our pick for the university with the best student life for japanese language and literature is Washington University in St Louis. Are you curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about our top choices. Many of our picks will probably shock you.

If cost is a primary influence in your choice of where you attend university, you might consider avoiding Vassar College. Vassar College appears to be the most expensive college for japanese language and literature, at least regarding out of state enrollment. That being said, we have an entire list of the most expensive universities that could put the expense of Vassar College into perspective. You may also be interested to know that japanese language and literature is the 160th most expensive program in America, with an average bill of $33,000. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for japanese language and literature on our list is New York at University of Rochester and Vassar College, the primary schools in New York, of $55,040 and $57,910. Even more broadly, the most expensive region for japanese language and literature is the Plains region which is best demonstrated with Macalester College with a cost of $56,062, and Washington University in St Louis with a cost of $54,250.

In-state attendees can anticipate paying about $11,500 for a degree in japanese language and literature. That price inflates significantly to an average of $30,100 for an out-of-state public-school undergraduate. As such, you might be interested in our selection for the university representing the best value for japanese language and literature: Washington University in St Louis. On this page you will find our comprehensive list for the schools we believe to be the best value overall. Bear in mind, this discussion is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when it comes to in-state tuition, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for japanese language and literature students differ a lot, but within two-years of completing the major students will often earn in the neighborhood of $46,000. There can be much variation in earnings potential; top earners can rake in up to $92,300. Straight out of college, the lowest earning positions within the japanese language and literature field make $22,900, which is an alright wage. The top earning graduates for japanese language and literature graduated from Washington University in St Louis and if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The overall diversity of japanese language and literature ranks very highly, falling within the 98th percentile of majors nationally.

The financial diversity of Japanese Language and Literature is only within the 82nd percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, in the 97th percentile.

Additionally, 54% of undergraduates pursuing a japanese language and literature degree are women.

The median score for japanese language and literature's professors is 4.2 stars, which is 5% above the average across all majors; which is a good ranking. If you want to find the most popular japanese language and literature professor nationally, take a look at Ken Ito at University of Hawaii at Manoa. This may come as a surprise, but the top ranked instructors of japanese language and literature according to students are found at University of Hawaii at Manoa. As we including data beyond simply rankings it becomes clear that the school with comprehensively the best professors for japanese language and literature is University of California-Santa Barbara. One will find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as some of the finest examples of instructors nationwide.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for japanese language and literature is University of California-Los Angeles. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have a general page for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we hope you understand that looking at the education process with context mainly formed from superlatives could be said to be the root of many of higher education's fundamental problems. We hope you look at some of our more focused pages on different colleges and explore some of our insightful background pages on important details to consider as you continue your school search.
