Program Goals

Contemporary Global Issues being a focus of lectures (or classes), the goal of this program is to foster talented individuals to broaden theirhorizons beyond national boundaries and play an active role ( or part) in the global (or world) stage. Whatever academic background you have at your university, TUFS’s “Japan Studies in a Global Era” will help you bridge the gap between your own accumulated academic knowledge and the real practical skills necessary to work at a Japanese company in the future. As such we offer a versatile program also aimed at those who are interested in science and other career paths in addition to area studies or humanities majors. If your primary field is in area studies, you will have more opportunities to develop your own academic interests through our regular lectures at TUFS according to your level of proficiency in English and Japanese. Our aim is to provide you with the means to develop your own specialized knowledge and a unique inter-cultural sensibility while training you to become professional leaders who will contribute to solving the global challenges that Latin America and Japan both face now and in the future.
