ACM Japan Study at Waseda University
Students study at Waseda University’s International Division in Tokyo after a brief orientation providing intensive language practice and cultural discussions. In addition to required language study, electives may be chosen from a wide range of Asian studies courses taught in English. A family living experience in Tokyo provides an informal education in Japanese culture and is in many ways the dominant feature of the program, offering total immersion in the Japanese way of life. The program is recommended for a full year of study, although a semester option is also available. Administered by Earlham College, Japan study is recognized by both ACM and GLCA.
Length of Program: Mid-September to late July (academic year) OR mid-September to early February (fall semester).
Eligibility: Sophomores, juniors, seniors with a minimum 3.0 GPA. No Japanese language study required to apply, but at least one unit of Japanese language must be completed before departure.
Credit: Up to 8 units.
Application Deadline: January 12.
Campus Advisor: Joan Ericson.
This program contributes toward a thematic minor in Asian Studies.
