Summer 2005 Intensive Sub-Session Programs

TUJ will offer a number of special summer six-week programs during the summer semester. These programs are very intensive and are designed for advanced who wish to study a certain aspect of Japan or its culture in depth. Most of these students will be Study-Abroad students from the U.S.A. These programs are all six week/six credit offerings and they are also open, on a space-available basis, to TUJ students.

These programs are very intensive and demanding, and any student approved to enroll in one or more of them is strongly advised to take no other regular summer session schedulework (six credits is considered full-time in a six week summer sub-term). Students who are considering registering for one of these programs in either or both of the six-week summer sessions should consult the local program coordinator. Prerequisite to any and all of these programs is advanced standing (45 credits minimum at time of registration), a minimum grade point average of 3.00, a completed full-time-registered semester within the last two years, and permission of the local program coordinator, who must approve, in writing, any exceptions to the stated prerequisites and/or any overload schedulework that might be taken along with a summer sub-term program.

The summer session programs have different timing from the regular summer semester scheduling matrix. Some meet on Sundays, as well as weekdays, and Second Summer Sub-Session programs extend beyond the end of the regular summer semester. TUJ Undergraduate Program holidays in summer will not apply to these programs. Please consult the local program coordinator if you desire more information about a given program.
