ATJ's Bridging Project for Study Abroad has answers to your questions about exchange programs and other types of study in Japan, information on college and university programs on both sides of the Pacific, and links to other sources of help and information.
Every year, more than 5,000 undergraduates from North American colleges and universities spend a year, a semester, or a summer studying in Japan. Some are majors in Japanese or Asian studies; others are interested in Japanese art, engineering, or popular culture and want to see it firsthand. Still others just want the experience of living and learning in a place quite different from what they've known so far.
For all of them, study in Japan can be a life-changing experience -- a unique opportunity to develop or improve language skills, discover a fascinating and dynamic culture, and learn new things about themselves.
ATJ invites you to find out more about study abroad in Japan. This site will introduce you to some of the places you can go and the people you might meet there.
You'll also find information on a new scholarship program to help American students pay for their study-abroad experience in Japan.
The ATJ database on study in Japan includes listings of North American colleges and universities with study-abroad programs, universities in Japan with programs for foreign students, and independent study options.
