JAPANESE

Middlebury College

The Japanese School is dedicated to serve the field by building on Middlebury College's long-standing commitment to language study. An immersion program is not a substitute for regular college courses, or for time spent living in Japan. It is an efficient, effective, and productive way to gain a strong foundation in the language, or to quickly improve proficiency in all areas. Many students have commented that they have gained as much from a summer in Middlebury as they have from their experience of living in Japan.

Japan-American Student Conference


The Japan-America Student Conference (JASC) is a non-profit educational and cultural exchange program for university students from the United States and Japan. It is the oldest student-run exchange program in the United States, beginning with the first JASC in 1934. JASC provides an opportunity for Japanese and American students from diverse backgrounds to extensively discuss issues that affect our two nations. By working together to confront common concerns, our countries can improve mutual understanding, friendship, and trust to strengthen our partnership. As students, we stand in a unique position that permits us to cooperatively observe and participate in contemporary politics and diplomacy. Our student status also facilitates education, about ourselves and also about others. As the leaders of the future, we must begin an active, personal commitment to these goals now.
