The aim of this lecture series is to provide sound knowledge of Japan’s politics and economics, as well as a basic understanding of contemporary history, enabling students to independently assess current developments in Japan and beyond. The lecture series intends to nurture interest so as to encourage self-study to further deepen knowledge.

Please refer to the German version of this page for further details.
(The lecture series is held in German language.)

Grading is based on a final exam (in the form of a multiple-choice test (in German language)).

The utilization of resources at the exam is not permitted (with the exception of foreign language dictionaries which may be used in exceptional cases and following prior approval by the lecturer).

The four exam dates (at the end of the semester and in the course of the following winter semester) are announced on u:space, u:find and moodle.
