This program is open to all Western Washington University students regardless of major or minor. A minimum 2.5 accumulative GPA is required for all study abroad program participation. Students must have a valid passport. Non-WWU students are also encouraged to apply.
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.
