Program Description:

Program OverviewIE3 Akita, Japan

Experience Japan on a more personal level. Set in the wooded mountains of northern Honshu, away from the dense crowds of larger Japanese cities, Akita almost resembles a Japanese Oregon. Akita International University (AIU) offers an accessible and exceptional introduction to Japan. The intimate and highly personalized study program at AIU mirrors Akita's small town atmosphere.

Program Focus

This Oregon University System exchange program gives you the opportunity to take basic to intermediate courses in Japanese language.  This Summer Program is a six-week, 9 quarter credit, intensive Japanese language program designed for highly motivated undergraduate students around the world. Participants can take elementary courses taught by experienced Japanese instructors to hone their Japanese language skills in a small class environment.
