Program Overview

Program Description:

Live and study in Japan, surrounding yourself in the country’s unique culture while developing your Japanese language skills in an immersive language-learning environment. This comprehensive semester features private housing and expert instruction from the J.F. Oberlin University in Tokyo’s Machida suburb, along with a range of engaging cultural activities, excursions, and even overnight trips, all included in the program price. Great for Global Studies, International Relations, Japanese Language, and East Asian Studies majors, you’ll study Japanese while also choosing three or four additional courses taught in English or further focusing on specific language competencies. Outside of class, you can take advantage of being close to the center of Tokyo (but with a lower cost of living!) and practice speaking and interacting with the local community on a daily basis.
