University-wide Education Program “Global Japan Studies Program”
(Undergraduate level)

1. Outline

The Global Japan Studies program is designed to instill the knowledge necessary to understand the politics, economics, culture and society of Japan by taking lectures given by prominent faculty members from a variety of specialized fields. The program offers the students an insight into Japanese Studies that ranges from the fundamentals to specialized knowledge of Japan Studies. This course is provided in English, thus giving an opportunity to students whose level of proficiency in Japanese would normally prevent them from taking the normal lectures given in Japanese, to participate and learn topics relating to Japanese society. Program is designed to be completed by students for one year. Students who complete the program will be issued with a ‘certificate of completion’.
