We offer a master degree in Japanese Language at Jawaharlal Nehru University.

  • But by the beginning of 1980's with a sudden improvement in Indo-Japanese relations, especially in the field of bilateral trade and technology transfer a spurt in the demand for Japanese Language experts was created and it has been gradually rising.
