Undergraduate Courses:     English Language and Literature   Japanese Language and Literature   History   Human Relations   International Studies   Philosophy   Education   Primary Education   Psychology


   The Education program is for those students who intend to do professional work related to education in government offices, companies, schools, communities, etc., or for those who would like to approach education with knowledge and vision for the future as citizens and prospective parents. The objective of educational studies is the education of the whole person, which is what human society essentially strives to achieve. The major has three courses:
   1) "Child and Learning Studies Course" to study education and personal development;
   2) "Communication and Teaching Materials Development Course" to study the use of information and expression through multi-media;
   3) "Global Education and Lifelong Learning" to study issues on education and lifelong learning in the era of globalization.


CURRICULUM

   Students specializing in Education programme study the fundamental areas of education, that is, philosophy of education, history of education, educational sociology, and educational administration. Other courses include, for example, international comparative education, methods of education, lifelong learning, and health education. There are not many required courses so students can choose classes freely according to their interests. Classes are small and, especially in seminars (with about 10 students) under the guidance of professors, lively discussions often take place. Based on their individual studies in seminars, students write their graduation theses. Theses topics are varied and range from orthodox areas to modern educational problems.

   In the "Center for Study Support," students have access to various multimedia computer software which can be used for classes, study, or research related to graduation theses.
