Knox students delve into the language, history, and philosophy of Japan through Japan Term, an interdisciplinary program that integrates coursework with a two-week trip to Japan.

Japan term lets students immerse themselves in a culture and then apply what they've learned outside the classroom. The goal is to make students purposeful travelers rather than passive students.

The program balances group travel with individual and small group projects tailored to interests developed during the coursework. Travel concentrates on opportunities to communicate with local residents while studying history and philosophy. Participants also have the opportunity to meet Knox alumni, exchange students, and other Knox students studying in Japan. Returning students have the option of enrolling in a seminar to complete longer research and creative projects.
