The 2023-2024 OCS program calendar has been released! Check out the Carleton-led Off-Campus Studies programs that will be available during the 2023-24 school year.

Linguistics and Culture in Japan

Featured Program: Linguistics and Culture in Japan

The Linguistics and Culture in Japan program takes students into the fascinating world of Japan. Program participants will learn about the Japanese language from a linguistics perspective, and by living with/befriending Japanese university students, they will immerse themselves in Japanese culture in a new way. By the end of the program, students will have acquired the skills to navigate through unfamiliar environments, and will learn to see both themselves and the world in a new light.
