Program Description

Program Dates: June 2–29, 2019

Osaka is Chicago’s sister city. Much like Chicago, Osaka is famous for its food and friendly people. You will get to know this global city through course excursions and have the opportunity to explore the wider Kansai region with day trips to Kyoto, Kobe, Himeji, Nara, and Mt. Koyasan. Courses are scheduled three days a week to allow for easy weekend travel, and Tokyo is just three hours away by bullet train. This program involves direct cultural exchange with students and faculty at Osaka City University.

COURSES AND ELIGIBILITY
Illinois Tech faculty teach all courses, which meet at Osaka City University. This four-week summer program allows students to take up to six Illinois Tech core curriculum credit hours. One social sciences course and one humanities course are offered, giving students the opportunity to earn “S” and IPRO credits toward the Illinois Tech general education requirements. This program is open to students in all colleges who are not on academic probation.

Space is limited, so apply early! Preference will be given to students who take six credit hours.
