Curriculum Policy

  • Academic Input and Practical Output Repeated in the Curricula
    To enable students to gain the competencies (abilities and skills) defined in Diploma Policy, the University systematically designs the curricula repeating “academic input” of knowledge and skills from Liberal arts subjects, Basic tool subjects, and Practical English and “practical output” from Project-Based Learning and Experiential/Practical Programs. Students take courses according to their awareness of issues and academic situations.
  • Subjects Selection from “Perspectives”
    The Liberal Arts subjects are set up so that students select a “Perspective” from which to view the issues based on their own interests, and can learn useful knowledge about the themes of each perspective. This is to develop students’ ability to look to the future from multifaceted, diverse, and global perspectives for problems in the real world while keeping SDGs in mind.
  • Development of Global Collaboration
    Students will foster the ability to respect diversity and cooperate and create mutual relationships of trust with others that possess different values from them. This is done through actively bringing in international students from abroad, having international students learn together with Japanese students, and having the students work hard together while also having students be globally active and develop communication skills that enable cooperation with a diverse range of people through the practical English curriculum, courses taught in both Japanese and English, study abroad, and international experience programs.
  • Practical Education with Partner Organizations
    Students will foster the ability to respect diversity and cooperate through Experiential / Practical programs, including Internship, Volunteer, and Overseas Programs.
    Students shall also develop the ability to discover fundamental issues, create plans for solutions, and see things through by tackling practical problem-solving issues in cooperation with various partner organizations, including companies, NPOs, international organizations, and local governments.
