IES Japan: Tokyo

Tokyo is a modern city of wonderful contrasts. Its dignified temples and shrines stand quietly in the shadows of massive skyscrapers. Tokyo's modernity and fast pace are somehow subdued by the serene charm of its many parks and the quiet courtesy of its people. Both energetic and graceful, Tokyo is a gateway to the fascinating culture of Japan. You can experience everything Tokyo has to offer through one of our unique programs.

Kansai Gaidai in Japan

The Curriculum of the Asian Studies Program is twofold; the rigorous Japanese language studies and courses in the Social Sciences, Humanities, and Business/Economics pertinent to Japan and Asia make it possible for participants to approach a wide array of study areas during their stay in Japan. While Japanese language instruction plays a key role in our program, we are by no means a language-training institute. For this reason, the structure of the program may not necessarily accommodate the needs of those students whose primary interest lies solely on acquisition of the Japanese language. Since all courses in the Asian Studies Program, aside from those focusing on the Japanese language, are conducted in English, it is possible for students with no previous Japanese training to pursue an in-depth study of Japan and Asia.

Nanzan University in Japan

THE NANZAN SCHOOLS are located in the rolling hills overlooking metropolitan Nagoya and in the nearby cities of Toyota and Seto on the outskirts of Nagoya. NANZAN GAKUEN is an educational complex consisting of the university and its research institutes and study centers, a women's junior college, three high schools and a primary school. The gist of Nanzan University's education is expressed in the motto common to all Nanzan educational institutions: "Hominis Dignitati―for the dignity of all human beings." While all undergraduate and graduate programs have required courses on religion, Christianity, or ethics, promoting the objectives and character of Nanzan as a Catholic university transcends these specific courses on religious and moral values: the spirit of "Hominis Dignitati," shared by faculty members and students alike, serves as the common ground for education and research at Nanzan University. Academic excellence is defined by a focus on personal growth and communal service.
