About this course
This course aims at developing students' world view and understanding of global issues. Our particular focus is on the issues of Japan studies. UTokyo students will welcome students from Finland and Hungary for about 10 days, live together at National Olympic Memorial Youth Center, and participate in various collaborative learning opportunities in seminars, workshops, field research, intensive discussions, and Japanese language learning as a foreign language. Students will not only learn through a series of seminars and workshops, but also proactively engage in research on a particular topic of their interest together to deepen their understanding about Japan. After the trip, they will summarise what they have learned during the course from the perspectives of, for example (but not limited to) knowledge, attitude and skills. The course is undertaken in English, and accordingly, offers opportunities for the students to develop their academic skills in English.
