EAS students are strongly encouraged to participate in short-term, semester, or year-long study abroad programs, especially ones that include language study, in East Asian countries.

 In China, our students take part in year-long, semester, and summer programs at the Jesuit consortium Beijing Center for Chinese Studies, of which JCU was a founding member.  To learn more about Fall, Spring, and Summer programs at The Beijing Center, visit its website at:  www.thebeijingcenter.org.  In most circumstances, most JCU financial aid can travel with JCU students to the Fall and/or Spring semester at The Beijing Center.

In Japan, our students can choose between year-long or summer exchange programs offered by Sophia University in Tokyo or Nanzan University in Nagoya; or semester-long study abroad at Kansai-Gaidai University, near Osaka.

Sophia University is a Jesuit university with liberal arts and business courses taught in English. http://www.sophia.ac.jp/eng
