New SLU Program launched in Osaka, Japan

St. Lawrence University has established a new semester long Japanese studies study abroad program with Kansai Gaidai University, located in Hirakata, Osaka, Japan. Students selected for this program will be enrolled in the university's Asian Studies Program where they can take introductory courses in Japanese as well as select a variety of courses in humanities, the arts, and business. One of the largest of such programs in Japan, Kansai Gaidai, which is located near ancient capital of Kyoto, will afford SLU students the opportunity not only to begin their Japanese language studies, but to sample the rich culture and traditions of Japan.
