Program Description

Akita International University Exchange (AIU), Japan

Special Interest: Japanese language and culture

Qualified Ursinus Students can study at AIU for the fall and/or spring semester. In addition to intensive Japanese language courses, AIU offers many courses taught in English in a variety of disciplines, making the program open to students of all majors. Its location gives our students an opportunity to study away from Japan's urban centers, while still having access to a region rich with cultural and recreational activities. AIU houses most of its exchange students in dorms with Japanese students. A winter term option is available. Previous study of Japanese is desirable but no required. Admission is competitive. Up to 16 credits.
