General information for one-year and one-term study in China and Japan is given below. We strongly advise that after reading this page you talk with one of the following faculty members. Planning ahead is strongly recommended. Be sure to discuss with a faculty member the procedure for gaining pre-approval of transfer of language and literature credits for recommended programs. Transfer credit approval for non-recommended programs is not guaranteed. All pre-approval of credits for CHIN, JAPN and LIT (Literature in Translation relating to China or Japan) courses must have the signature of the Dept. of EALL Head.
Students are not limited to the three programs listed below, but will need to speak with Professor Ujie or Professor Ikeda and Kip Brooks (Center for International Education) well in advance to propose another program.
If you are interested in summer programs in Japan, please see Professor Ikeda or Professor Ujie for a list of recommended summer programs.
