This particular study abroad course takes advantage of the opportunity to study organizational communication from a global perspective; in particular from the perspective of one of our largest trading partners: Japan. Japan has the third largest national economy in the world and a close relationship with the US thereby making it likely that students will incorporate course-related learning at some point in their professional lives. Students will have the opportunity to explore Tokyo, a top-tier international city with a blend of cultural influences. In addition, the course includes seminars with Japanese students on the campus of Seinan Gakuin University in Fukuoka. Students will have the opportunity to experience firsthand a contemporary Japanese university while conversing with bilingual (Japanese and English) faculty and students.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel/hostel accommodations.
