Hoshigaoka campus

Japanese language class

Program students are recommended to take “Introductory Japanese” during the semester.
(one 90-minute lecture, 15 weeks, 2 credits).

*We start this new Japanese class instead of 2-week intensive course. Please note from 2019 Fall semester there is no 2-week intensive Japanese course that we offered before.


Students often experience a situation in which people cannot understand English well and/or cannot find an English description in their student life (including on campus). It is not required to have Japanese language learning background when they apply for this program, but we recommend them to study everyday Japanese before their departure in order to make their study abroad smoother.
