This four-week program is open only to students of The Claremont Colleges. Located in the city of Kobe, the program consists of Japanese language class, lectures on Japanese culture, a family stay, and field trips to places of economic, political, and cultural interest. You may also add a second independent study course on an aspect of Japanese culture of particular interest. This option must be supervised by a faculty member at The Claremont Colleges. Classes are held at Kobe Shukugawa Gakuin University (KSGU) in Kobe, Japan. The Summer Study in Japan Program is part of a comprehensive exchange agreement between Pitzer College and KSGU.
