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 $220 for the general public, and $200 for NC State-affiliated persons. 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 registration/payment period for the Fall 2021 semester is now CLOSED. The deadline for registration/payment was Friday, August 20, 2021.
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all face-to-face class level students and instructors are required to wear masks at the Spring Hill House. We also strongly recommend and encourage everyone to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
