Addressing issues that surround multicultural societies and cultural conflicts

The educational goal of this department is to foster leaders who can communicate skillfully across national borders and solve current issues surrounding multicultural societies and cultural conflicts. In order to achieve this, we have established the following three academic programs that respectively focused on these three key terms: culture, society and communication.

Global Cultural Formation focuses on research and education that equips students with an accurate understanding of how today’s diverse cultures and value systems were formed and how they have changed over time. This program will deepen students' understanding of other cultures, including comparisons with Japan.

Global Social Dynamics focuses on research and education with the aim of finding and disseminating solutions to various problems faced in today’s world, within the context of rapidly globalizing societies in which information, capital, people and products are freely shared and distributed throughout the world.  

Global Communication focuses on research and education that explores both the potential and problems of verbal and nonverbal communication in various domains, and diverse methods of information processing using ICT.
