The Japanese program has two established study abroad programs in Japan, where students can go for a summer, a semester, or a full year. We also recommend a number of intensive summer language study programs both in Japan and in the United States.
Students also have a number of opportunities to continue contact with Japan and the Japanese language after graduation, whether it be an overseas internship or teaching English as a second language in Japan.
Students interested in seeking employment in Japan are encouraged to attend the Career Forum for bilingual speaker of Japanese and English. The Forum is held in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo. W&M grad Julian Oreska (2009) found his job with Bandai through the Boston Career Forum. If you are interested in talking to Julian about his experience with the Forum, contact Professor Cronin.
