Additional Study-Abroad Opportunities

**Summer Programs in Kyoto, Japan: the Kyoto Consortium for Japanese Studies. Established in September 1989, the Kyoto Consortium for Japanese Studies (KCJS) is a consortium of 14 American universities that sponsors a rigorous, two-semester academic program for undergraduates who wish to do advanced work in Japanese language and cultural studies. Although WSU is not one of the participating universities, the Consortium welcomes and encourages students from other universities. For more information go to

 **WSU has three exchange programs in Japan at Kansai Gaidai (near Osaka), Aoyama Gakuin University (inTokyo), and Okayama University (in Okayama). It is also has one in Korea at Dankook University.

 **WSU works with several affiliated study abroad companies and the non-profit organization, ISEP (International Student Exchange Program), through which our students can study “directly” in universities in any number of countries around the world. For example, recent WSU students of Russian language and culture have enjoyed studying for a semester through AIFS (American Institute of Foreign Studies), in St. Petersburg, Russia.

 **Please visit the WSU Study Abroad website for more information at: The first step in studying abroad on any of these programs is to sign up for a study abroad information session. Dates for the information sessions are listed on the website and students should sign up online if they plan to attend. Information Sessions may be found at:

 Please note that programs for Summer 2020 have been cancelled, and Fall 2020 programs are likely to be cancelled as well.
