University of Portland Bulletin 2012-2013

Summer Studies in Japan

An educational, cultural experience is available in Tokyo. Although a basic Japanese course is offered, this is not a language program. Instead, students participate in a series of lecture courses taught in English by specialists on Japan-related topics. In addition, conducted tours enable students to learn about the people of Japan firsthand. Course offerings in Asian studies discuss Japanese social structure, economics, history, art, religion, and business and management practices.

The program is open to all qualified students, with a preference for global business majors. Those interested should apply early to ensure acceptance. Satisfactory academic achievement and favorable personal recommendations are required.

Students will choose two courses from among 12 offered by Sophia University. Six undergraduate credits may be earned.
