Japan is a floating world of contrasts. 
NCEP Japan 2
This archipelago of nearly 7,000 islands is home to one of the most technologically advanced cities in the modern 
world. It is also a land that is deeply rooted in historic and cultural traditionalism. With nearly 130 million people living in a geographical footprint the size of California, Japanese have created a harmonious balance between traditionalism and modernism. CCE Japan: Exploring a Land of Contrasts will enable students and faculty to engage in a full immersion into the Japanese culture over a two-week period. Students will spend most of their cross-cultural experience in Tokyo and the immediate surrounding area, paying special attention to arts, fashion, language, food, historical events, music, religion, and popular culture. Three days will be spent in Osaka and Kyoto, experiencing the oldest and newest Japan has to offer. A dedicated time for comparison to one’s own culture will result in a reflection project that may include digital storytelling, photo essay, expanded journal, and more.  This CCE is designed to challenge the hearts and minds of students. Students attending the CCE MUST attend the CCE course conducted in the spring semester.

The Cross-Cultural Experience is a signature component of Carroll's General Education curriculum, which is characterized by an integrating theme of culture and a requirement for domestic or international cross-cultural experience. This experience challenges students to apply classroom-based examinations of cultural difference and to interact with cultures other than their own in an off-campus setting. Meets Gen Ed two-credit CCE requirement.
