Summer Session in Asian Studies

Since its foundation in 1961, Sophia University’s three-week Summer Session in Asian Studies has provided students with the opportunity to study abroad in Japan and explore the country’s relation with Asia and the rest of the world. Participants choose two intensive courses from a list including Japanese language, history, art, religion, literature, society, culture, economics, and politics.
In addition to the courses offered, students are encouraged to participate in field trips and cultural events (three to four activities each year) included at no or a small amount of extra cost, such as opportunities to view performances of Noh and Kabuki, experience Japanese tea ceremony and ikebana, visit Meiji Shrine, and attend a Wadaiko (Japanese drum) lesson. (Events may be cancelled and the number of participants may be limited.) Some courses also feature field trips directly related to the course. Summer Session in Asian Studies participants choose up to two courses and earn three credits with successful completion of each course.
