Updated: Mar 17, 2021

Interested in spending a semester abroad? Learn more about Aichi Shukutoku University in Nagoya, Japan!

Immerse yourself in the beauty and harmony of Japanese culture. Aichi Shukutoku University (ASU) adopts “living with diversity” as its philosophy for education. The pillars of ASU’s education are to nurture the abilities, knowledge, and skills of students while deepening their understanding of each other—regardless of culture, nationality, religion, age, gender, or disability. Students can take a wide range of communication courses in English, along with a two-week intensive Japanese language program. At the Center for Japanese Language and Culture, students can acquire comprehensive Japanese language skills and hands-on cultural experiences, such as flower arrangement and calligraphy.



  • ASU has a 2.75 minimum GPA requirement.

  • Semester and year-long programs available. Fall Semester: Early September to end of January. Spring Semester: early April to early August.

Course and Subject Offerings

  • Global Communication

  • Japanese Culture and Pop Culture

  • Other cultural topics dealing with Politics, Gender, and Multiculturalism

  • Some Business electives

  • Japanese language (While not required by ASU, we highly encourage students to take a Japanese Language course while attending ASU. Not everyone can speak English in Japan, especially outside of campus, therefore having a basic understanding of the language will enhance your experience while abroad.)
