Associated Kyoto Information Meeting
The Associated Kyoto Program, Inc. (AKP) is a non-profit organization incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In cooperation with Doshisha University’s Organization for Promotion of International Cooperation, they operate an independent program for undergraduate students from US colleges and universities.
AKP provides a rigorous academic and cultural experience that enables college students from US institutions, regardless of their academic or personal background, to develop a multifaceted understanding of Japan, Japanese culture, and the Japanese language.
Through a liberal arts tradition that combines in-class study with opportunities to experience Kyoto through field trips and homestay immersion, AKP seeks to foster in its students a long-lasting intellectual curiosity of Japan, respect and appreciation of other cultures, and cross-cultural communication skills with which they can succeed in today’s interconnected world.
