The course at UC Berkeley has begun.

The course at UC Berkeley started on June 22 (Mon), 2015. Five AIU students traveled to UC Berkeley for the course and met five of the enrolled UC Berkeley students. Both AIU and UC Berkeley students attended lectures and discussions on campus and took part in fieldwork in Japantown, Chinatown and Mission District.
