Ready to expand your Japanese language skills both in class and during free time? The CET Japan program is designed to maximize language improvement and allows you to complete at least a full year of university-level Japanese each term. The flexible curriculum includes options for electives in Japanese or in English. You’ll share a furnished, off-campus living space with local roommates. The cozy campus is just 15 minutes from downtown Osaka. Weekend trips and group excursions take you off the tourist map, to hot springs, a re-created ninja village, or a ropes course in the mountains. Japanese language learners of all levels and majors are welcome to attend the fall and spring programs. The summer program has a full-time language pledge and is open to students with at least 2 previous semesters of Japanese language.
