The English Track program of the School of Global Japanese Studies enables students to engage with contemporary Japan regardless of their previous experience. Those with limited or no Japanese language proficiency are welcome. All courses are taught in English and our program provides various levels of Japanese language classes alongside the core curriculum.For all students, the four-year degree program begins with broad-based General studies courses, including an introductory course on Global Japanese Studies, which are grouped in three areas of concentration: Culture and Art, Business and Society, and Globalization. As their Japanese language skills improve, students can also take courses taught in Japanese. In addition to the formal curriculum, student club activities, field trips, and internships ensure that students develop a lasting interpersonal network and a broader view on life and work in Japan. By graduation, students are able to improve their language skills and expand their knowledge of Japan.
