UW Summer Launch in Japan: Supernatural and Surreal



This program is part of UW-Madison Study Abroad’s Summer Launch!

Join your fellow incoming first-year Badgers on this exciting summer program to Osaka, Japan! Led by Professor Charo D’Etcheverry, UW Supernatural Japan is a unique, engaging experience designed especially for incoming UW-Madison first-year students.

Through classroom learning, guided site visits around Osaka, you’ll focus on Japanese stories about ghost and monsters, tracing transformations across genres and eras to consider their continuing influence on Japan’s popular culture, as well as on responses to national trauma.

Students accepted to this program will travel together to Japan and back to Madison. You’ll start fall semester having built strong relationships with your internationally-minded peers and faculty mentor, and having completed 3 UW credits.

This program is offered by UW-Madison in cooperation with the CET Academic Programs. There are no prerequisites for this program.
