Tokyo, Japan

The Tokyo study-abroad program introduces students to the architectural and cultural vibrancy of this contemporary Japanese city.

The three-month program consists of a design studio and a seminar led by SCI-Arc faculty, and specialized travel seminars and workshops taught by Japanese faculty from leading institutions such as the University of Tokyo, Kyoto Seika University, Keio University, and Hosei University.

In addition to formal coursework, the program includes field trips to areas of interest in Tokyo and its surroundings. Students also attend lectures, openings, and exhibitions related to topics highlighted in the program curriculum.

Program partners include the San Francisco-based Bechtel Corporation, offering training on environmental disaster simulation software, and ARUP Japan, providing hands-on engineering and technical support to students completing their final projects.
