As of summer 2017, "Asia in Today's World" is now re-named "Summer in Japan."

Summer in Japan is a 5-week, summertime, intensive study abroad program that Kyushu University offers for credit to students from around the world. Using English as the primary medium of instruction, SIJ aims to introduce, in an intensive and effective manner, those with entry-level knowledge about Japan to its contemporary society and culture through offering traditional in-class academic coursework and a variety of off-campus activities for experiential learning.

Coursework includes 1 Asian studies class and 1 Japanese language class. 

PLEASE NOTE: You will be taking 2 classes on this program, but due to the five-week duration of the program, students who participate in SIJ will only be able to receive one transfer credit per GEO policy, not two.
