Top Global University Project: Partner’s Programs

One of Akita International University’s initiatives under the Top Global University Project has been to co-develop special short programs in Japan Studies with faculty members from partner universities.

These Partner’s Programs give participating students the opportunity to experience unique aspects of Japanese language and culture and enhance their understanding of Japanese culture with coursework not available anywhere else.

    • Developed with: The Australian National University
    • Open to (2023): The Australian National University
    • Period (2023): January 5, 2023 – February 10, 2023
    • A six week combination of advanced Japanese language and rural Japanese culture content coursework taught entirely in Japanese, including the set-up and execution of a winter festival.
