Meiji University Course Numbering

Meiji University has introduced a subject numbering system for fiscal year 2019. The purpose of introducing course numbering and examples to utilize it are as follows.

Purpose of Introducing Course Numbering

The purpose is to help students learn in a structured way by classifying all the subjects offered at Meiji University depending on the academic field, level, etc., numbering each subject, and showing academic significance of each subject. In addition, the course numbering is intended to be a tool to facilitate cooperation with overseas universities.

Examples of Utilizing Course Numbering

Students can utilize the course numbering as follows.

1. Students can understand from which subject they should begin by understanding the importance of the subject in the curriculum from the academic classification, difficulty level, etc. for classes of such subjects.
2. When students study abroad or enter a university in other countries and go through the procedure for recognizing credits, etc. at the university, they can clearly show the status of their learning at Meiji University.
3. We can show the scope of the academic field of the classes taught in our undergraduate school to students from other countries who want to study at Meiji University. In addition, after they enter our university as an international student, they can utilize the course numbering as a reference for choosing subjects to take.
