Come On Out Japan Info Session – Northwestern University on 11/9


Attention students and recent graduates!

We are launching the 4th Annual Come on Out-Japan Summer Internship Program and extending our invitation to top Universities and Japanese high school students for a cross-cultural learning experience. We will be on campus Thursday, November 9th at Kresge Hall Room 2440 from 6-8PM, and hope to see you there! See the Facebook Event page for further details:


We are currently seeking University students and recent graduates with native level English skills, who would be interested in coming to Japan for 6 weeks from mid-July to late August, 2018.  Although this is an unpaid internship, the sponsor is providing certain expenses for each Intern who participates in the six-week program. In addition to airfare, lodging, meal and transportation subsidies, the program offers optional Japanese language classes, field trips, dinner/cooking nights and at least one overnight trip. These additional opportunities are all designed to add cultural enrichment to your summer abroad experience.

This program is truly different from any other traditional teaching positions in Japan.  Interns will facilitate English conversations with Japanese high school students on a variety of relevant global topics. Outside of the class, interns will have space in their schedule to fulfill their personal goals and cultural exploration.

We do not have any Japanese fluency requirements and accept undergraduate, graduate and recent graduate students.

See links below for more information. If you have additional questions regarding the program, please contact Come on Out-Japan directly or via our inquiry tab on our website. You can find our application at www.comeonoutjapan.com!

Please remember this course listing is provided as a snapshot of classes that might be of interest to you as an SoC student and is not meant to substitute for the listings in CAESAR or consultation with your advisor.  In fact, there are often changes made on the CAESAR listings right up until registration and sometimes even after. Additionally, not all pre-requisites have been listed for all classes because some course descriptions have not yet been posted. So, take a look and see what interests you and then make sure to check the CAESAR listings to confirm class details. Classes are scheduled to go live on CAESAR on Monday, October 30th, 2017.

As always, if you have questions about your own degree progress or whether a class will count toward your major, minor, certificate or other additional program, make sure to check with your advisor. The Undergraduate Advising tab at the top right of the Spotlight blog page http://comm.soc.northwestern.edu/src-spotlight/  will take you to their email address and contact information which is listed by major.

Don’t forget: Pre-Registration for Winter Quarter 2018 begins on Monday, November 6th at 8:00 am and ends Thursday, November 9th at 5:15 pm.
