The Kyoto Consortium for Japanese Studies, or KCJS, is a study abroad program founded in 1989 and currently housed at Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan. Operated by a consortium of universities, the program is centered on advanced Japanese language training combined with Japanese or English-language coursework for college credit. Students are also encouraged to participate in homestay programs during their time at the program. Faculty also requires students to take part in a Community Involvement Project which gets students involved in local teams, clubs, groups or organizations at Doshisha University, Kyoto University, or other nearby and unaffiliated places.The consortium has been managed by Columbia University since 2006, and was previously managed by Stanford University.
