No prior Japanese language experience is needed, but it is recommended students study Japanese for at least one semester prior to this program. Upon arrival the student will take a Japanese proficiency test to determine their language level. Students will then be placed in one of the nine proficiency level classes (beginner to advanced). Other classes available to students include topics in: Japanese history, culture, and language, business, sports study, and intercultural communication. The College of Business has developed an outline of electives for Rikkyo University courses and their equivalents at SCSU (Rikkyo University Equivalency Guide.pdf)
