The Faculty of International Studies offers a course program to enable students to approach issues faced by a globalized society from multiple angles (in the second year, students take a course of their choice from: International Cooperation; International Economics; International Politics; International Culture; International Tourism; and General Agriculture). We have a flexible curriculum that lets students explore their areas of interest and grow in stages, based on an understanding of foreign languages, cultures, ethnicities, and political and economic systems. Through this curriculum, we educate truly internationally minded people who will contribute to developing solutions to global issues.
Students as global citizens will deepen their understanding, think together, and find ways to solve international challenges.
