Model Study Plan #02

For international students who wish to continue their studies of culture in graduate school

It is important for students who study culture that they have as many opportunities as possible to be exposed in-depth to the practical realities of that culture and creatively combine various research methods. At the College of Global Liberal Arts, not only do students study in a multicultural environment across our two campuses in Japan and Australia, but we have also assembled numerous courses in which students comprehensively study Japanese culture and history, and courses in which students carry out fieldwork. By studying an interdisciplinary curriculum that includes not just the humanities and social sciences but also courses that will improve technological literacy, students will be able to acquire the fundamental research abilities and broad perspectives that are necessary for pursuing graduate-level research.
