The Center for Japanese Studies Program (CJS) at Nanzan University offers a combination of two components: The first is an intensive language component designed for students who are serious about studying Japanese. The second encompasses a broad spectrum of courses in Japanese area studies, perfect for students interested in learning about Japan. Outside of class, students can enjoy day-trip excursions to Toyota Motors or relax on campus in the Japan Plaza with their new Japanese friends.
