A semester-long program open to sophomores and juniors of all Japanese language abilities interested in developing their Japanese skills and increasing their knowledge about Japan, its people, and its culture. While Japanese language majors may want to concentrate their efforts on language courses, students can choose from a wide variety of courses taught in English on such topics as Asian studies, international business, economics, history, political science, art history, literature, religion, philosophy, anthropology, and sociology. The program is run by Council for International Educational Exchange (CIEE) and based at Sophia University, a Roman Catholic institution and one of Japan’s top-rated universities. Students may choose homestay with Japanese families (an invaluable opportunity to experience the Japanese culture and society in a way that a tourist cannot) or the university dormitory option, which is available to academic year students. Tokyo is one of the largest cities in the world. As both the capital and economic hub of Japan, Tokyo is a fascinating example of how old traditions and the new high-tech culture meld.
