Prof. Susan Burns, the faculty director of the Kyoto program, and several alumni will be at the meeting to discuss the program and answer questions.

This program offers an unsurpassed opportunity to:
* Take courses in Japanese culture, literature, politics, history, etc.
* Make significant progress in Japanese language
* Experience an historic and beautiful Japanese city
* Earn credit toward your Chicago degree

The Kyoto Program is designed for students with at least two years of Japanese language study (through JAPN 20300) and a desire to build upon this study through intensive language coursework at the advanced level (one year of Japanese plus an intensive summer language program will suffice). In addition to their language work students take courses, taught in English by a combination of American and Japanese scholars, on various Japanese and East Asian subjects. Kyoto itself, an historic shrine city and a continuing center of Japanese culture, a city largely undamaged by the Second World War, is a central attraction. For a student eager both to achieve a "personal best" in Japanese and to gain an extended experience of Japanese culture, the Kyoto Program is a brilliant opportunity.

* It requires at least two years of Japanese.
