Undergraduate Teaching

My main teaching at Hokkaido University at the undergraduate level is classes on the Modern Japanese Studies Program. The courses that I teach, including all the materials used in class, are available via this website.

Courses offered on the Modern Japanese Studies Program may also be taken by exchange students on the Hokkaido University Short Term Exchange Program (HUSTEP) and the Japanese Language and Culture Studies Program (JLCSP), and by Hokkaido University students as International Exchange classes (kokusai koryu kamoku). Students who are members of Nitobe College, the University’s initiative to send more of its students on study abroad experiences, have to take International Exchange classes as part of their College completion requirements.
