Program Overview

Photo at KUISKanda University of International Studies ("Kanda gaigo daigaku" / KUIS) invites students to enroll in their Japanese Language and Culture Program. Dartmouth has the option of sending one student for the full academic year or two students for one semester each. The curriculum is based on Japanese language training, but also includes some opportunities for Japan-related study in courses taught in English. Students selected for the exchange will receive nine transfer credits for a full academic year or four transfer credits for a single semester, with the approval of COCA.
