You have told us for years you want to study abroad in Tokyo, Japan — well, you spoke and we listened! We are proud to announce that API is now in Japan! We have partnered with Lakeland University Japan (LUJ) to create a wonderful program in Tokyo, and applications for API’s Multidisciplinary Studies and Japanese Culture are now open! Read on to learn more about this brand new API program.
The Location: Dreaming Through Tokyo Skies
Tokyo is one of the world’s most energizing and influential cities. With our program, you can spend a summer, semester, or year in this unique city. By studying in Tokyo, you will experience Japan’s history, traditions, and culture. Take courses toward your degree while learning about global and Japanese business culture, tea ceremonies, calligraphy, politics, and more!
Tokyo is one of the most populous places in the entire world. You will discover unique neighborhoods brimming with delicious food, lively cafe culture, famous UNESCO world heritage sites, and more. While exploring, you’ll find almost anything: haute couture to fashionable streetwear, modern skyscrapers to ancient temples, Michelin starred restaurants to bustling food stalls and markets. The city also serves as a great jumping off point for exploring the rest of Japan.
The Program Hosted by Lakeland University
Live and study in Tokyo while fulfilling requirements toward your degree (Read: still missing a Fine Arts or Natural Science gen ed? We’ve got you covered!). What makes this program different? You will learn by doing. Not only will you just listen to a lecture about tea ceremonies, but you will participate in them. You won’t just take notes on how to interview for a Japanese company, but actually put that knowledge into practice as an optional work experience in Tokyo.
The best part is that API will make sure you see more than just Tokyo with excursions to places like Hokkaido, Nikko, Hiroshima! You can explore more details on our program page.
