The Kyoto Consortium for Japanese Studies program provides students for an academic year or Fall Semester to enroll directly at the Kyoto Consortium for Japanese Studies (KCJS) in Kyoto, Japan. One year of college-level Japanese language is required to be admissible. KCJS is based at the Imadegawa campus of Doshisha University located just north of the Imperial Palace in the center of Kyoto. Each semester, students take an eight-credit course in Japanese language. Additional disciplinary-based courses in the humanities and social sciences are taught in English by Japanese and American professors. Students can choose to live with Japanese families through a homestay program or live in apartments.
