Overall Experience
I gained international knowledge and broadened my communication skills by meeting international students and talking to locals in Japan. I also gained fieldwork experience and I learned how to time manage very well. Writing for a blog and also posting on social media for a specific audience were skills I learned as well. - Texas State University-San Marcos View Entire Review
I learned a lot of patience and time management. We had to make the time to do our assignments and work alongside other peers and the professors. I really found it worthwhile working with strict deadlines, I found it fun working with other people. - Texas State University-San Marcos View Entire Review

About

Students will explore Tokyo, Kyoto and the surrounding areas to write daily blog posts, feature stories and personal travel essays. They will also create photo slideshows and short videos (Jon – feel free to adjust this to reflect your class). Students will also visit an international university for cultural exchange and tour historic sites, temples and shrines. In addition, students will visit media companies such as news bureaus and public relations agencies. More information about these student creators and their work can be found on the class website at www.sjmcjapan.com

In this program, students get to explore Tokyo, the capital of Japan and one of the largest cities in the world. A day trip to Kamakura will allow students to see Daibutsu (the Great Buddha), a site designated as a Natural Treasure in Japan. In addition, students will also visit Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan.
