2016-17 Short-Term Programs

2016-17 Short-Term Study Abroad Programs

Tokyo & Kyoto with Dr. R. Steen: Dates TBD (4 credit hours)

What is Tokyo? Ancient capital in Western clothing? Postmodern utopia? Out of control megalopolis? No matter how it’s defined, Tokyo is one of the most dynamic and culturally rich cities in the world. Explore the city in-depth through visits to museums, temples, shopping arcades and historic sites. A day trip to the historic city of Kamakura will provide added context. Pre-course readings, formal and informal writing assignments, and oral presentations will be assigned. No training in Japanese is required.

Cost: The program fee for Tokyo will be based on the size of the group, TBD. Last year’s costs were as follows:
6-9: $2600
10-14: $2200
15+: $2000

Tuition will be $2000.

The total due to Oglethorpe will be TBD, depending on the final size of the group and this year’s program costs. You will purchase your own plane ticket after consultation with the program leader.
