Entered by Online Admission
I chose to study at iCLA because it allowed me to take Japanese cultural classes alongside my major, breaking up the more technical classes in my degree with courses that fulfill my other academic and creative interests. The multicultural environment also helps you learn about the world, not only in your courses but from your classmates and professors. The small community means you can build close relationships with both your peers and professors.
