Queen's University and Kwansei Gakuin University (KGU) in Japan are proud to announce the establishment of a joint multicultural academic program to benefit a select group of both Queen's and KGU students. Known as the KGU Cross-Cultural College (CCC), Canadian and Japanese undergraduate students will take courses for academic credit with an emphasis on multiculturalism and international studies, as well as joint seminars and internships where these two groups of students will live, study and work together in both countries. In this project, KGU and 3 Canadian universities ― Mount Allison University, Queen’s University and the University of Toronto ― will work together to educate world citizens with the multicultural understanding and communication skills to enable them to be the leaders of the future.
Students participating in this program will have the opportunity to study in Japan for at least two weeks (or more depending on the selected program), in which travel and accommodation will be largely subsidized because of generous funding provided by the Japanese government.
The International Programs Office is now accepting applications from Queen's students who are interested in particpating in the 2012 KGU CCC programs being offered this summer. More information about this learning project and summer programs can be found on the IPO website under the Study Abroad section. There is also a KGU CCC program website at http://ccc-canada.jp/english/index.html.
