This school is a small university, but the students and the teachers have a close relationship, and students are in an environment where they can easily communicate with their teachers. It is up to each and every student’s level of awareness as to whether they can make the most of this environment. Don’t be easily controlled by the flow of what is going on around you. Please hold true to yourself strongly. We look forward to supporting a person who strives to learn like that.
About learning at
At our university, we aim to raise up people with the skills and knowledge necessary to take an
active part in society, and students can choose classes from 5 academic fields of study with a
studio course at their core.
In the Tourism Department students not only learn about Tourism, but from lecturers who have taken actual part in tourism industry jobs, students can get training that ties in with gaining knowledge of actual workplaces. In the Cross Cultural Studies Department we aim to raise active members of the global society who can discover problems and think of solutions to those problems in classes, while learning modern languages.
One of the special features of this university is the extra attention paid to supplying Japanese classes for international students. We aim to train students in the academic Japanese language necessary for life in university, and aim to provide them with Japanese which is in actual use at university or society at large. Aside from the required subjects, each student is able to choose the optional subjects for the skills they need to master.
A message to those people
thinking of joining us at
At this university, starting from Chinese and Vietnamese students, we have many international students from various countries studying with us. Upon graduating, many of those students will stay and work in Japan’s Tourism Industry, or do their best to find work in positions where they interact with others. In order for them to achieve that goal, what they need the most is communication skills. Please don’t only learn languages, but consciously take part in activities where you mingle with other people. It is when you meet up with others that you will learn the most. Please don’t just sit in your lectures, take part in “activities” from your own initiative.
