**Summer Programs in Kyoto, Japan:  the Kyoto Consortium for Japanese Studies. Established in September 1989, the Kyoto Consortium for Japanese Studies (KCJS) is a consortium of 14 American universities that sponsors a rigorous, two-semester academic program for undergraduates who wish to do advanced work in Japanese language and cultural studies. Although WSU is not one of the participating universities, the Consortium welcomes and encourages students from other universities.  For more information go to

**WSU has three exchange programs in Japan at Kansai Gaidai (near Osaka), Aoyama Gakuin University (inTokyo), and Okayama University (in Okayama).  It also has an exchange program at Dankook University in South Korea. It is also possible to study in Korea at several universities such as Yonsei University, Korea University and Keimyung University among others through the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP).

 **WSU works with several affiliated study abroad companies and the non-profit organization, ISEP (International Student Exchange Program), through which our students can study “directly” in universities in any number of countries around the world.  For example, recent WSU students of Russian language and culture have enjoyed studying for a semester through AIFS (American Institute of Foreign Studies), in St. Petersburg, Russia.

**Please visit the WSU Study Abroad site for more information: 
           The first step in studying abroad on any of these programs is to sign up for a Study Abroad Information Session:
           Dates for the information sessions are listed on the website and students should sign up online if they plan to attend.
