Getting to Japan

The Japanese program maintains study abroad programs with three universities in Japan, where students can spend 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.

Many of our students continue their engagement with Japan and the Japanese language after graduation, whether through 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 grads Julian Oreska (2009) and Shumin Gong (2016) found job in Japan through the Boston Career Forum. For more information about the Forum, contact Professor Cronin.
