Experience It

With globalization making a huge impact on our lives, a range of new issues have arisen in a variety of fields. The objective of this department is to develop professionals equipped with a global perspective, advanced language skills, and a broad education -the attributes of a person who can deal with these issues. From your second year, you can choose one of two courses: the "International Cooperation Course," in which you will gain knowledge related to world peace and learn skills required to solve global problems, and the "Global Business Course," in which you will learn skills that will help you to contribute to society through business.

Providing solutions to global issues with education and practical skills in the social sciences

This program is designed for students to learn about problems in the world with a global perspective that sees the Earth as a single system. Students will acquire some basic knowledge of economics, business administration, law, political science, and sociology through courses on international relations theory, foreign aid, environmental issues, international economy, and marketing. Furthermore, students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience by taking classes such as "Model United Nations" and "Community Engagement Workshop". These programs aim to foster individuals who can potentially contribute to solving various global issues by equipping them with education and practical skills in the social sciences.

Acquiring specialized knowledge in English to compete in the real world

Students will obtain specialized knowledge that they can utilize across the globe by taking courses such as international relations, economics, and accounting that are taught in English, and doing groupwork and holding discussions in English with students from all over the world. All the specialized department subjects are taught in English, while students have a choice to take Liberal Arts subjects in Japanese. Through the integration of the humanities (such as cross-cultural understanding) and the social sciences (international relations theory and business administration), this curriculum builds a solid background for those aspiring to compete on the global scene.
