Courses & Programs

  • The NC Japan Center seeks to foster a greater understanding of Japan in North Carolina through language and other programs. Our non-credit Japanese language courses are open to the public (high school age students and above); and all classes are currently being offered via a “hybrid” model – some class levels will meet face-to-face, and other class levels will meet online (Zoom Meetings). In the unlikely event that the NC State campus goes into lock-down again, ALL class levels will meet online. In this case, NO refunds will be issued for face-to-face class levels transitioning to an online format.
  • All programs cost $250 for the general public, and $230 for NC State University-affiliated persons (current employees of NC State, those whose parents/guardians are current employees at NC State, and those whose children are current, enrolled students at NC State). All class payments must be made through the NC Japan Center eStore (there is a 3% convenience charge). As a policy, the NC Japan Center does not offer refunds, though extreme circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Class registrations/payments on the NC Japan Center eStore are restricted to registration periods. The deadline for registration for the Spring 2023 semester will be Monday, December 5, 2022.
  • We strongly encourage those participating in face-to-face classes (students and instructors) to wear masks at the Spring Hill House. We also strongly recommend and encourage everyone to get a COVID-19 vaccine and booster shot(s).
