Upon successful completion of the entire six-week program, students will earn six credit hours in JPN 2310 and JPN 2320 or three credit hours in JPN3V70. Participants must have completed JPN 1401 and JPN 1402 with at least a "B" average to enroll in JPN 2310 and JPN 2320.

A full-time faculty course director will oversee the entire program including academic and cultural components, administrative and personal matters, and travel arrangements. While in Japan, the class will meet on the campus of Hosei University, one of the exchange universities of Baylor; and participants will stay in the accommodations near Hosei University. Other program features include cultural excursions, outreach activities, company visits, and special lectures by a Japanese university professor, homestay, and peer-to-peer cultural exchange with Japanese university students.
