Let’s Take JTW Core Courses for Credit!
So, does JTW interest you? Even if you are not a formal participant in the JTW program, you may still take JTW Core Courses for credit or just auditing. While designed primarily as JTW’s core component for academic learning, these courses are also offered as elective courses as part of the university’s general/KIKAN education curriculum to all students, including domestic students, degree-seeking international students, and non-JTW exchange students all across the campus.
The JTW program encourages you to come join the Core Courses, all of which are taught in English. While covering a variety of subjects from diverse disciplinary perspectives, all these courses are taught under the framework of global Japanology. You will learn about a variety of aspects of contemporary Japanese culture and society, not merely in themselves, but as part of our ever changing global society today and in the future from a constructively critical perspective.
The JTW Core Courses are an excellent learning resource to effectively widen your perspective on our world today through the lens of contemporary Japan. These courses will also offer you the opportunity to get to know and befriend JTW students, which will help enrich your daily student life here on campus as well as your academic learning in the classroom.
