“Education and Research Objectives”

The FLA offers an English-language liberal arts curriculum in which students are encouraged to study specialized subjects (comparative culture, social studies, and international business and economics) in close connection with neighboring disciplines. The FLA thereby seeks to foster the students’ linguistic skills, multicultural competency, and flexible and critical thinking ability. The FLA also seeks to contribute to the understanding and betterment of global society through interdisciplinary research.

“Human Resource Development Objectives”

FLA’s “ideal graduate” is a well-educated individual who, equipped with “global competency” (including linguistic skills, flexible and critical thinking, and cross-cultural skills), can serve as a bridge between Japan and the rest of the world.
