Have you ever wanted to experience another way of life? If so, the JSU Study Abroad Program in Japan is the perfect thing for you.

Jason Mallet, the coordinator of the International House and Study Abroad, feels that these programs are well worth the experience.

The program takes place at Kansai-Gaidai University in Hirakata, Osaka, Japan. This is an extremely safe country with few violent crimes, so it is a good place for college students to go. 

The summer program at Kansai-Gaidai University is a six week cultural and language program. Students in this program will receive eight hours in Japanese language and two hours in Introduction to Asian Studies. 

To qualify for this program you must have at least one semester’s equivalent of Japanese language knowledge.

The deadline to show interest in this program for the summer of 2021 is Feb. 15, 2021. The deadline to enroll is March 23, 2021. 

The program also has a Semester Exchange Program. This is one full semester of 12 to 15 hours. The number of courses available for this program is extremely high. However, there are no STEM courses offered.

If you are interested in either of these programs or have any questions, contact studyabroad@jsu.edu for more information.
