    1. Hi April! I’m glad you’re interested in study abroad programs; I studied abroad in Rome this past summer through the Viterbi Overseas Program and I had a blast. I don’t know of Japan specific study abroad programs off of the top of my head, but you can always work with your advisor and USC’s Office of Overseas Studies to build a plan just about anywhere you could want to go! I did a little bit of searching for some programs and found a list here that might be up your alley, so it is definitely possible if you have your heart set on Japan!

  1. Hey!

    For summer overseas programs, is it the same destination for everyone each year? Or can you choose where you want to go?
    For example, in the summer of 2018, where is the summer overseas program heading?

      Hey Edward! The Viterbi Overseas program is different every summer and rotates between 5 european cities. Madrid, Spain; Rome, Italy; Florence, Italy; London, England; Paris, France. It’s announced at the beginning of every year so no one knows yet, but all the cities are amazing! I went to London on the program and it was the greatest experience of my college experience. Definitely watch the video above to see all the cool stuff we did!
