Go Forward

 Based on an educational policy that focuses on strengthening each individual, the School of Global Japanese Studies (SGJS) aims develop multifaceted individuals who can contribute to the global community. We aim to provide a deep understanding of Japanese culture and social structure, as well as practical English and Japanese language skills, which will enable students to effectively express their opinions and convey information. In today's globalized society, we aim to develop students with an understanding of Japan who seek to share valuable information with the global community from this perspective. 

Global Japanese Studies Courses

 To develop knowledge of the broad areas of Global Japanese Studies, Global Japanese Studies courses are offered in eight research fields: Pop Culture Studies, Visual Culture Studies, Social Systems and Media Studies, International Relations and Intercultural Exchange Studies, International Culture and Thoughts Studies, Japanese Culture and Thoughts Studies, Japanese Language Studies, and English Language Studies. 
 These research fields are carefully designed so that students can study systematically and take courses across different fields. Among these research fields, we offer specialized courses including Japanese traditional culture, contemporary Japanese culture often referred to as "Cool Japan," the mass media and the content industry. SGJS promotes regional studies, comperative cultural studies, and international relations in addition to Japanese studies. We aim to develop students who have a vision of Japan's role within the world and have a flexible understanding of cultures in various regions of the world, including Japan. 

Japanese Language Program

 SGJS emphasizes the study of the Japanese language for both Japanese and international students. This is especially important for international students when acquiring a deeper understanding of Japan's culture and society.

General Studies Program

 SGJS offers a wide range of subjects, including Social Sciences and Humanities and ICT (Information & Communication Technology) for General Studies, Seminars, and Second Foreign Language.

Creating a Multicultural Environment

 SGJS places a high priority on attracting international students from diverse cultural backgrounds. By taking advantage of this multicultural community, students can improve their foreign language skills and develop cross-cultural competence. They study and interact daily with people of different nationalities and ethnic identities.
