Japanese Academic Courses(JACs)

The School of Interdisciplinary Science and Innovation offers its international students Japanese language courses for credit in order to meet their diverse levels of Japanese proficiency. The courses consist of four types: Integrated, Kanji, Speaking, and Writing. Each of these classes are divided up to eight levels as illustrated below.

All first-year international students are required to complete prior to the beginning of the semester both online registration and an online placement test. The test results determine the types and levels of courses the students are eligible to take. Students may opt for a combination of any two courses within the four types (e.g., Integrated and Speaking).
