Liberal Arts Education Leading You to the Future
Why Global Liberal Arts?
The College of Global Liberal Arts (GLA) at Ritsumeikan University is the first in Japan to launch a dual degree program with the College of Asia and the Pacific at the Australian National University (ANU).
This means that you will experience the combination of a liberal arts education at GLA and the world’s leading research university on the study of the Asia-Pacific at ANU.
