Exchange & Study Abroad Program students will be placed in one of six different levels in the core Japanese program, depending on previous study and the results of placement tests. Besides the core courses, a variety of elective Japanese courses are offered to meet students' needs. (Please note that not all elective courses are offered every semester; some are offered just once a year.) Classes are 100 minutes long. Classes in the Core program meet one to five days a week, depending on the level. Elective classes meet just once a week. Course contents and offerings are subject to change without notice.
