INST 489D: Study Abroad Practicum in Kansai Gaidai, Japan

Prerequisites: Consult Director of International Education. Available Fall, Spring, and academic year.

Credits Hours: (12-18)

Open to all majors. Limited scholarships may be available.

As an exchange student in Japan, participants can study almost any subject, including Japanese Business Overseas, Media in Japan, Anthropological Perspectives on Japan, Religion in Japan, and Japanese Art. Instruction is in English for most classes, and Japanese is taught at all levels. Exchange programs allow RU students to study abroad while paying RU tuition. Hours earned are treated as if completed at RU for both program completion purposes and financial aid. Students must complete an RU Study Abroad Registration and Course Approval form outlining courses to be taken and approved before leaving to study abroad. Grade values are assigned as pass/fail and the awarding of specific course credit is determined at the conclusion of the experience and when official transcripts are received by the Registrar’s Office.
