Japanese language and literature is the 244th most popular degree in America, with 728 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #245 Landscape Architecture, and narrowly lost to #243 Writing.

The degree is offered at a total of 94 colleges across the nation, and is the 176th most widely offered degree. Given that japanese language and literature is offered at 34% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America, you can be sure this is a critical degree and the skillsets acquired are likely to last for a long time.

It is also worth noting that more or less five eighths of colleges offering japanese language and literature are public making it a quite accessible field.

The far west produces the most japanese language and literature graduates, largely led by University of California-Davis, while it’s the Pacific-12 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from University of California-Davis and University of California-Los Angeles.

All that being said, no individual school produces more japanese language and literature graduates than City College of San Francisco, which graduated 42 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study japanese language and literature). More students studied japanese language and literature as a percentage of total students at Macalester College than any other college.
