Program Description:

Tokyo Summer, 2020

“My experience in Tokyo was one that I truly could not have gotten anywhere else and I loved every minute of it. The opportunity to travel around Japan and live in a culture so unlike our own is an opportunity that should not be passed up.” -Alex Bridgeman, Accounting, Summer 2017


Sophia University, a Jesuit institution in downtown Tokyo, offers courses in the humanities, social studies, international business, and economics.  Students will choose two courses (worth 3 credits each) among a variety of classes.
No previous Japanese experience is required and all courses are taught in English.
The program is especially recommended for Global Business minors. 

The Experience: 

All courses are linked with the different sights and cultural aspects of Tokyo. Among the special tours planned are visits to the Meiji Shrine and the Edo-Tokyo Museum. It is also possible for students to experience a range of traditional Japanese arts including Noh, Kabuki, the tea ceremony, flower arrangement, and a variety of Japanese arts on display at Tokyo museums. 


Students live in a dorm-style hotel (rooms include kitchenettes) called the Asia Center of Japan.
