eligibility1You do not need to be an East Asian Studies major or minor to benefit from this program. Anyone with an interest in Japan, Japanese culture or language, can find this program valuable.

There are no prerequisites for this program. While Japanese language classes will be offered at the beginner and intermediate levels of instruction, we recommended students to familiarize themselves with the basic writing systems of Japanese: hiragana and katakana. We also like to recommend picking up a good travel book on Tokyo and making a list of places you would like to visit.
