CIEE Tokyo - Summer
Contemporary Japan is a land of intrigue. It is exemplary of how a country can uphold its ancient traditions and coexist with a new economic grace. Japan has created an indelible reputation based on its great production capacity and export of technologically advanced items, while maintaining its cultural signature of elegant formality. Tokyo, Japans capital and economic hub, is a shining example of how old traditions and new high-tech culture meld to create one of the most fascinating cities in the world.
Based at Sophia University, this program provides students with a supportive environment in which to study at one of Japan’s top-ranked universities and experience life in Tokyo. While its participants enroll in Sophia University’s Summer Session of Asian Studies alongside Japanese and international students, CIEE resident staff organize a special orientation and various cultural activities designed to introduce students to different facets of Japanese society.
