                    Kyoto Consortium


Live and study in Kyoto, a city rich in traditional culture and history.  Kyoto, one of Japan's most beautiful cities, is home to Buddhist temples and ancient palaces, as well as a thriving modern culture that includes some of Japan's most advanced high-tech firms.  KCJS is an intensive, two-semester academic program based at Kyoto University for undergraduates who wish to do advanced work in Japanese language and Japanese studies.  The program takes advantage of the numerous social, intellectual, and cultural resources of Kyoto by incorporating into the curriculum field trips, guest speakers, Japanese student partnerships, and independent research projects based on local field work.
