BA Politics and Japanese / Careers

Year of entry: 2020

Career opportunities

A degree in Politics and Modern Languages and Cultures paves the way for a broad range of careers. You'll develop intercultural awareness and enhanced communication skills - both highly valued by employers. You'll also acquire transferable expertise at the very heart of language learning, including enhanced powers of perception and interpretation and advanced decision-making and multitasking skills.

You'll develop independence and self-confidence during your residence abroad, and your intercultural communication skills will make you a strong contender for media, journalism and PR roles.

Many of our graduates go straight into business services, marketing, advertising, management, banking or communications. Others pursue postgraduate study or further vocational training to become accountants, lawyers, teachers (both in the UK and overseas) or to enter the Civil Service.

Employers who have taken on graduates of our Politics and Japanese courses in the past include the BBC, HSBC and the United Nations, as well as Dell, Berlitz, The Confucius Institute and Christian Dior Couture.
