Kansai Gaidai University

Program Description

Kansai Gaidai University seeks faculty to teach courses in the Asian Studies Program through their visiting professor program. While it is desirable if the faculty members' main interest or research area is in Japan or Asia, other areas may be accommodated since the teaching opportunities are available in the Asian Studies Program as well as in a special program for Japanese undergraduate students.

Since the 1970s, UW-Eau Claire students have been studying at Kansai Gaidai University for a semester or academic year as part of the Asian Studies Program.

Depending on the number of courses that a faculty member is asked to teach abroad, the faculty may still have teaching obligations at UWEC for the semester abroad.  

Faculty traveling with a spouse/partner and/or any dependents are responsible for the costs associated with accompanying family (e.g. airfare, immigration fees, international health insurance, etc.).


Kansai Gaidai University is located in Hirakata City (population 400,000), midway between Osaka, Japan's second largest industrial city, and Kyoto, the ancient capital (map). The university was founded in 1945 as a private language institute. Today, Kansai Gaidai enrolls more than 11,000 students, including more than 700 students from 50 countries in the Asian Studies Program.
