The DSU Travel Study in Japan Program provides an opportunity for students to empower their academic and professional resumes with an international applied learning project that graduate schools and employers will hold in the highest esteem. Students will play a role in strengthening the relationship with St George Marathon’s sister city, Ibigawa, where they will pursue faculty-led research projects about life in the region and publish their work on an English language website. Students will also learn about the history and culture of Japan through first-hand experiences in the metropolises of Tokyo and Nagoya.
