Nihon University, Mishima offers students the opportunity to study Japanese from intermediate to advanced levels, as well as English-taught electives. Although language classes are not intensive — usually held 4 times a week — students will be able to experience the life and culture of Japan away from the crowds of the city. Regular courses are taught in Japanese and English across the international studies and international liberal arts departments. English options include an expansive Japan Studies course, while other offerings cover social science, humanities, economics and business from a global perspective.
