USAC Japan: Hirosima (Semester/Yearlong) - Undergraduate and Graduate Courses

The Hiroshima University Study Abroad Program (HUSA) is designed for students who wish to deepen their knowledge of Japanese culture and society while integrating into classes taught in English or Japanese with local students. The thriving metropolis of Hiroshima faces the tranquil Seto Inland Sea and is situated in a beautiful natural environment. The northern part of the city is mountainous, and the city’s ideal location offers recreation opportunities in water sports in the summer and snow sports in the winter. Hiroshima Prefecture is dominated by the Chugoku Mountain Range with its small towns and farming villages that offer traditional festivals and activities for all to enjoy. In 1945 Hiroshima was devastated by the atomic bomb, but its present prosperity is living proof of the energy and willpower of its people.

Program Highlights:

  • Live in a beautiful region of Japan while studying at one of its most prestigious universities, and experience firsthand a country rich in culture and history.
  • Choose from a range of courses taught in English including STEM fields, five levels of Japanese language courses, and a Glocal Internship working with the local administration office and local associations.
