Carleton College Off-Campus Study – Imadegawa Campus

Updated Jun. 21, 2018
For about 2 months starting March 30st to June 5th, Carleton College Off-Campus Seminar 2018 Linguistics was held at Imadegawa Campus. Carleton College is a private liberal arts college located in Minnesota, USA, and is well known for its academic excellence and warm, welcoming campus community. We had 18 Carleton College students who studied Linguistic and some other topics focusing on Japan using Doshisha facilities this year.

This program took importance on field trips and exploring cities besides the classes. Students were required to widen their field of activities in Japan and to experience the life in Japan. They also enjoyed student’s life by visiting places like Izakaya (drinking place), ramen shops, local bakeries, karaoke or local shopping. Program also took the students to Hiroshima where they visited Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Miyajima for deeper understanding of Japanese history.
Students seemed to enjoy the transition of seasons from spring with blooming cherry blossoms and to Japanese rainy season as well.
We also had peer students called “Doshisha Peers,” and they helped Carleton students with going on field trips and other things in students’ life like advising how to say something particular in Japanese or introducing university facilities. They made good friendships during the program.

The program had Welcome party and Farewell party at dining hall of Amherst Guest House. Carleton College students beautifully sang Doshisha College Song and Carleton College Song for Doshisha Peers at both parties.

We will have another Carleton program named 「Pilgrimage and Sacred Space in Kyoto, Japan」 focusing on Religion in 2019. We hope to build better programs year by year, and wish more international students will get to know Japan and Japanese culture through learning at Doshisha campus.
