◆List of Study Programs that are open for International Exchanges

Exchange students are encouraged to take Japanese language courses, based on the results of the placement tests given to all the new international students at the beginning of each semester.

They can also take any other courses offered either in the framework of general education or major area studies (e.g., tourism, environmental designing, business administration & information science). For this purpose, the N2 proficiency level in Japanese is required as most regular courses are taught in Japanese.
