The development of mutual relationships between Japan and other nations in Europe, America and Asia is studied from a global perspective by examining current international trends in these areas. The languages and cultures of the nations which have a close cultural relationship with Japan are also studied and, through comparative studies with these nations, Japan's position in the world can be better understood.

   The curriculum is composed to help students to take an active role in various fields in the world of the new century by cultivating broad global perspectives, practical language skills, and a better understanding of the social sciences.
