JAPAN Language Study Abroad Program at Dartmouth

The Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Languages and Literatures offers an intermediate language study abroad opportunity at Kanda University of International Studies (KUIS) in the suburbs of Tokyo.


Classes are taught for ten weeks from the middle of June to the middle of August. During the course of the summer, students complete three courses in the Japanese language.

Living with Japanese Families

In addition to classroom instruction and activities with Japanese counterparts, Dartmouth students will experience intense immersion in the language through the homestay program, in which they live with Japanese families.

Exploring Japan

The group takes several trips to areas of cultural and historical interest, including a seven-day excursion to the Kyoto-Nara region.
