Harvard Summer School in Kyoto 2017 – Imadegawa Campus

Updated Aug. 1, 2017
  We welcomed Harvard Summer School for 8 weeks started June 5th and closed July 28th. We had 14 students this 8th year, and they took two courses: “Inequality and Society in Contemporary Japan” by Professor Mary C. Brinton and “Japan: Tradition and Transformation” by Professor James Robson, and had several class-related field trips which made them deepen their understanding of Japanese history, society and cultures.

  We also had 11 Doshisha students as study-partners on this program - 7 students in Professor Brinton’s course and 4 students in Professor Robson’s course. Study-partners have contributed well by giving their perspectives as local students. They were stimulated by the program participants and learned a lot from them through interactions. All the students made great friendships outside the classroom as well.

  There were also great host families who warmly opened their home to the participants and treated them as their family members for 8 weeks. Homestay has been one of the important elements of this program.

  Sayonara (farewell) party which was held at Kambaikan building on July 28th had over 60 guests including students, faculties and host families. People shared their memories, laughed a lot, cried a little and closed the program with promising to see each other again someday in the near future.
