Fostering a broad perspective that is essential in the age of globalization

Educational Policy

The Faculty’s academic programs are designed to equip graduates with flexible and critical thinking, linguistic abilities, and cultural skills necessary to take the lead in bridging differences and promoting understanding in today’s increasingly multicultural and complex world. Diversity in the FLA student body, comprised of over fifty nationalities, including students educated at Japanese and international high schools in Japan, as well as both degree students and exchange students from abroad, provides an ideal environment for achieving the FLA’s educational mission.

Curriculum

The FLA offers an English-language liberal arts curriculum which enables students to acquire a strong academic foundation and intellectual orientation before selecting a disciplinary major. During the freshman year, students are required to take “core courses” which train them thoroughly in critical thinking skills as well as in writing and public speaking skills. From the second year onward, the FLA curriculum requires students to choose a major from among three broad areas (Comparative Culture, International Business and Economics, and Social Studies), and to study that field in close connection with neighboring disciplines. In the junior and senior years, students take advanced courses in their selected major, while continuing to take courses outside their major. This interdisciplinary orientation is designed to foster students’ ability to approach issues from multiple perspectives.
