In 2009, Meiji University was accredited by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology as one of 13 universities to serve as global centers that will make Japanese universities more competitive internationally, and nurture individuals who will be successful on the global stage. As one of the feathers of the project, the School of Global Japanese Studies (SGJS) will start a new English-based program, English Track, in spring 2011. In this program, students are able to earn all the credits of the SGJS in English and obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree in 4 years.

This program features a curriculum that concentrates on traditional and modern Japanese culture, as well as Japanese society in the global community, all of which are currently attracting worldwide attention. The curriculum is unique in that it includes subjects analyzing Cool Japan.

The school also provides total support for students’ careers in Japan or in Japan-related fields. They will have opportunities to learn Japanese as a second language, which will be included in the credits necessary for graduation.
