Tackling Problems Facing Humanity through Learning and Thinking in English

The Faculty of Global and Interdisciplinary Studies (GIS) offers a liberal arts education for the 21st century, where the students acquire knowledge by studying the latest theories from an interdisciplinary standpoint. GIS students learn from over 200 specialist courses taught in English which cover 30 different fields, from humanities, to social sciences and business. Such cross-sectoral analysis and communication in English are essential tools for considering global challenges and important cultural phenomena. GIS is committed to nurturing the next generation of highly-skilled leaders who can add their voices to discussions in the global community. With this enhanced understanding and interdisciplinary viewpoint as a foundation, our graduates go on to utilize the knowledge and communication skills they developed at GIS at foreign-affiliated companies in Japan, companies with overseas operations, and world-class graduate schools.

Thinking Outside the Box through a World-standard Curriculum

GIS (Global and Interdisciplinary Studies) does not have any “general education” courses. Instead, students all take specialized courses to deepen interdisciplinary and cross-sectional knowledge centered on the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Management Sciences. Students can choose classes which suit their interests, making a schedule which suits them best. In the process, they develop the ability to express themselves freely, learning to think critically through engagement with a world-standard curriculum.
