STAYS (Study Abroad for Yasuda Students) is a program exclusively offered to students of the English department. It has a history of more than 25 years and its educational value has been highly regarded. In 2013, the program became obligatory and all the second year students study abroad during the second semester. Students have made great advances in their studies of English and American culture. Students study either at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) or University of California, Davis (UCD). Both universities offer different courses that enrich students' learning experience and both provide opportunities to study outside the classroom. By learning and experiencing life outside Japan, students grow both as English learners and as human beings.

 英語英米文学科で取得できる資格には、「日本語教員資格」があります。将来、国際語としての英語を駆使して日本語を教えてみたいと、多くの学生が取得をしています。この資格を取る学生は、「日本語教育実習」として、公民館で広島在住の外国から来た方々に日本語を教える活動に参加をさせてもらいます。アジア、ヨーロッパなど、世界の様々な地域から来た人達と交流ができ、友情が芽生えるという、そんな喜びもありますが、何よりも、母国語である日本語を教える過程で、専門で学んできた英語についても、気づいていなかったことが見えてくる貴重な体験ができた、と学生たちから好評です。
