The Japan and Its Buddhist Traditions program serves both Antioch University (AU) students and undergraduate students from any college or university in the United States. Students in good academic standing with their home institutions may apply. Students should be mature, sensitive, self-disciplined, and able to adapt to new situations. Non credit students who demonstrate a serious commitment to learning will also be considered
No prior foreign language study is required, as coursework is conducted in English. Students with previous Japanese language study will be assessed and placed in a language class upon arrival.
The application deadline is March 30.
We strongly encourage students to visit their study abroad office on their home campus as soon as possible as they may have earlier deadlines.
Late applicants will be considered on a space-available basis. Contact AEA if you plan to apply after the deadline.
Students who need to obtain or renew their passports should apply as soon as possible using the expedited option due to major delays at U.S. passport processing centers. (You will need to renew your passport if it is not valid for at least 6 months past the end of the program). Apply for or renew your passport here.
