The deadline for KCJS Summer Programs in Advanced & Classical Japanese has been extended to March 13, 2015. Please share this information with your colleagues and students, and forward to appropriate email lists.
The KCJS intensive summer programs, held at Doshisha University in Kyoto, offer training in advanced or classical Japanese for highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students who have completed one year of Japanese or the equivalent. Students enroll in the advanced or the classical course, each of which carries eight points of credit on a Columbia University transcript upon completion. Language instruction will be provided by the regular faculty of KCJS, which is now in its 26nd year as a highly successful junior-year-abroad program in Kyoto, and by visiting faculty from member schools of the KCJS consortium.
Conversation partners will be arranged for students of modern Japanese to provide additional speaking practice. Field trips (including one overnight trip), guest lectures, and other activities that utilize Kyoto’s rich cultural resources complement classroom instruction. Students live in homestays or apartments near campus.
We look forward to a great summer in Kyoto!
