We are pleased to announce that the Keio Short-Term Japanese Studies Program (KJSP) is to be held again from February 6 to February 21, 2018. The KJSP is a two-week, intensive English-taught program which offers lectures on a variety of topics, off-campus activities, networking opportunities and more to present a broad and yet engaging look into Japan's culture and society. After participating in lectures by leading experts in the field, students take part in hands-on activities and excursions to experience what they have just learned, debating at the Ministry of Finance one day and sampling freshly-prepared sushi the next.
Participants will gain knowledge not only from the lectures by experienced faculty members and through a range of activities, but also through exchanges with current Japanese Keio University students who will also join the program. Moreover, students have a chance to learn survival Japanese targeted toward first-time Japanese learners. Providing students with short but intensive learning opportunities about Japan.
Keio University is the oldest private higher learning institution in Japan. The school was founded by Yukichi Fukuzawa in 1858 in Tokyo, and has been the leading university since then. Keio maintains the finest faculty with top-notch teaching and research skills, and has produced many prominent figures in Japanese society.
If you wish to transfer credit for the program, you must first seek approval from your faculty for credit transfer through Cross-Institutional Enrolment.
