Studying Abroad/International Exchange

By going to other countries to live for a determined period of time on the exchange student program, students can improve their language ability in that country in addition to experientially deepening their understanding of foreign cultures learning the importance of international exchange. Students who wish to study abroad may do so in a country and at a university where the language spoken is the same as the students’ elective language chosen in the fall term of the first year. Students will study at universities that have fulfilling learning environments through our university’s intimate, collaborative relationships with them.
