Post-Grad Opportunities in Asia
Each year 20 or more CSB/SJU students and graduates receive teaching and volunteering assignments in Asia. These young men and women teach English as a Second Language, assist school officials, and serve as goodwill ambassadors. While enriching the lives of others, they enrich their own by developing new friendships, gaining teaching experience, developing language skills and making career connections. There are no language requirements for these positions, nor is any teaching certification or experience required.
For the past several years the Asian Studies Program at CSB/SJU has helped hundreds of students and graduates find teaching opportunities in Japan and China. CSB/SJU students mainly teach through the following programs or in the following places:
- Maryknoll’s China Service Project
- Southwest University, Chongqing, China
- Xiamen University, Xiamen, China
- Bunkyo Gakuin University, Tokyo, Japan;
- the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program
- Shogaku high school in Okinawa, Japan
For more information on individual programs, please consult the following websites:
