Overview
CIEE-Tokyo

CIEE-Tokyo: Arts & Sciences Program

Tokyo, Japan's capital and economic hub, is an energetic city that balances modernity with a traditional past. In a single day one can see a kimono-clad woman talking on a cell phone, a man selling baked yams to ''salarymen'' in a crowded business district, and a 200-year-old portable shrine being carried through the streets by young people dressed in happi coats and straw sandals.

The CIEE Study Center in Tokyo is hosted by Sophia University, a private, Jesuit institution offering an extensive curriculum in both English and Japanese. Participants take courses at the Faculty of Comparative Culture where approximately 75% of the students are Japanese.

For more program information, please visit the program website. This program is sponsored by:CIEE.
