Project courses: Fall semester students may collaborate with Japanese students on project-based courses in English or Japanese focused on researching and proposing solutions to a local community issue. Past project courses have included improving bus routes and directions for tourists and visitors and increasing awareness of fair trade products available in Nagasaki prefecture. USAC students gain a unique opportunity to build relationships with students and local leaders while contributing to the Nagasaki community.
Field study options: The program offers an optional pairing of a Current Events in Japan seminar with Current Events in Japan fieldwork. Together, these two courses earn 1 Gustavus unit. In addition, there is also a Nagasaki fieldwork course offering.
Japanese as a Foreign Language exams: Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies offers preparatory courses for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) at the N1, N2, and N3 levels with a focus on grammar and listening practice. The JLPT is offered near the university campus in early July and early December. It is attractive to students who wish to work in Japan or in Japanese companies abroad. Costs vary.
Fall semester early assessment option: The Japanese fall semester runs from late September through early February of the following year. NUFS offers the option to finish coursework early before the Winter Holidays in late December. This option is available to Fall-only students. Yearlong students may not take the early assessment option. Students sign up for this option on the Nagasaki application materials.
