Japanese Language Education Program

We aim to develop Japanese language teachers and Japanese language education support personnel who can flexibly respond to the needs of diverse educational settings both in Japan and overseas. Students with diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to teach Japanese as a foreign language through collaborative learning, and develop analytical skills rooted in a deep education in the humanities and social sciences. By cultivating this, you will acquire practical skills that will allow you to expand the scope of Japanese language education.
