Figure Out The Way To Use Both 専門 and 専攻
“専門 and 専攻” are clearly different. However, a lot of Japanese learners have been confusing the way to use them. I know you should be using these words after reading this. Why don’t you use them to native speakers? Let me introduce how you correctly use them today!
“専門” means “Specialty” and which is completely different from “専攻“. “専門” is actually used as the word which you specialize in something, however, it is not only your major, unlike “専攻“. So, that’s why “専門” is often used as a huge meaning than “専攻“.
“専攻” means “Major”. When using “専攻” in daily conversation, that would be only the topic of a university or high school, unlike 専門. For instance “専攻は何ですか？ (What’s your major?)” Additionally, 専攻 is a noun and 専攻する is a verb.
