Sophia University's short-term intensive program, Summer Session in Japanese Language and Culture, started in June 2013. The six-week Summer Session is designed for students who wish to improve their Japanese language abilities through an intensive program organized in Japan. Different proficiency levels of classes are offered and students study Japanese in an international environment in the heart of Tokyo. Alongside the Japanese language courses, a lecture series on Japanese Studies will provide students with insights on Japanese culture, society, economy, and history.
