Past Review
My study abroad experience was definitely worthwhile. From it I gained invaluable knowledge about the Japanese language and culture, and made some of the best friends of my life. Immersing myself in Japan allowed me to see the practicality of the language and the unique qualities it and the culture it comes from possess.

It was definitely a worthwhile experience even though I decided to leave the program a semester earlier than I had planned for.

About

Nanzan is not so much a single institution as a complex of educational establishments gathered under the organizational umbrella of what is known as Nanzan Gakuen. This educational complex consists of an elementary school and three junior and senior high schools, in addition to the University and its research institutes and campus study centers. All of these institutions were founded either by the Divine Word Missionaries or the Missionary Sisters of the Holy Spirit.

From modest beginnings as a College of Foreign Languages in 1946, Nanzan took the small step to a single Faculty of Arts and Letters in 1949 and has since grown into a fully-fledged university with a worldwide reputation for academic excellence. With the addition in April 2000 of the Faculty of Policy Studies and the Faculty of Mathematical Sciences and Information Engineering, now known as Faculty of Information Sciences and Engineering at the new campus at Seto, and Nanzan Junior College moving into Nanzan University, the University now has seven faculties, one junior college and a total of thirteen research centers and institutes, reflecting its international outlook, the Center for International Education was set up to coordinate Nanzan’s various exchange and overseas programs, including the Center for Japanese Studies’ language program. Nanzan is constantly assessing ways to expand its mission further.
Committed to free inquiry and responsible scholarship, the University has the advantage of a low student-teacher ratio. Small classes and seminars provide an effective setting for interpersonal communication through which human dignity becomes a lived experience and an international outlook develops naturally. University enrolment is presently over 10,000.
