The purpose of this course is to prepare students to, on the one hand, conduct research using Japanese materials and, on the other hand, for the work environment through practical training in writing, communicating and giving spoken presentations in Japanese. In addition, the course aims to provide some 'authentic,' real-life experience in using Japanese, and to build community links, through engagement with the Japanese Community/Community of Practice and Learning Community. Students will be given the opportunity to further develop their communicative competence and a variety of other skills through project work. JAPA 317 will build upon the prerequisite courses, JAPA 326 Advancing Japanese B and JAPA305 Japanese Language 3.
