Studying abroad is an ideal way to learn language and culture more quickly and thoroughly; it is an integral part of foreign culture studies. We strongly encourage East Asian Studies majors and minors to study abroad for a semester or a year.
Gettysburg College is affiliated with study-abroad programs in Beijing, Kunming, and Shanghai, administered by SIT and CET. In addition to language study through the advanced level, the program offers a wide range of courses appropriate to the China specialization within the East Asian Studies major or minor.

Gettysburg College is affiliated with Kansai Gaidai University and Temple University Japan. Both universities offer instruction in Japanese language and a full range of courses on Japanese topics in English. Students may also choose to attend other universities in Japan. Credit for courses taken at Kansai Gaidai may be transferred and counted towards the electives for the major and minor with departmental approval.
The Center for Global Education offers semester and year-long, culturally immersive, credit-bearing, College-affiliated programs all over the globe for every field and major.
