At the College of Charleston, we attempt to provide our students with one of the most comprehensive Japanese programs in the state of South Carolina. In addition to satisfying the two-year language requirement, we offer third and fourth year courses for students who wish to study the language further. Along with the language courses, literature courses in English translation are offered for students who do not speak Japanese but are interested in Japanese culture. The College has an exchange program with Kansai Gaidai University of Foreign Studies in Osaka, Japan, through which students can study for a semester or a year.
