The Faculty of Foreign Studies addresses the needs of ambitious, determined students, who want to be “players” on the international scene and who understand that both their personal success and the success of the people around them will depend on their becoming multi-lingual citizens of the global community. Without exception, mastering a foreign language requires the development of four separate, but interrelated skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. But language is much more than grammar and vocabulary; language is a reflection of the “soul” of a culture, hence, it is necessary to study both the history and the contemporary society of the country where a language is spoken. Fortunately, in a great number of countries, English is spoken as a “common” language. A command of English gives one a “leg up” on the road to success.
At the Faculty of Foreign Studies, the door is wide open to those students who:
- strive to become international business people
- want to be involved in the international cooperation activities of NPOs (non-profit organization) and NGOs (non-governmental organization)
- aim to work in the air-travel or tourism industries
- desire to become a Japanese language teacher somewhere outside of Japan or a foreign language teacher in Japan.
