ML 358 - Japanese Thought and Culture

(3.00 cr.)

Japan is a country which remains mysterious and exotic for many; a country which both fascinates and puzzles. This course is intended to take students beyond the immediately observable and into the heart and mind of Japan. It provides a sociological overview of contemporary Japan and its culture by examining distinctive cultural patterns in many domains. Students explore issues relating to the physical environment; communication styles; the structure of a vertical society; modern mass media; marriage and family life; gender roles; education; the workplace; traditions and values; the Japanese perception of self; and how these various factors effect intercultural communication. Offered at Notre Dame of Maryland University (DLJA 358). IA
