About IGS

  2. Language competence: Students will be competent in English and Japanese.
  3. Interdisciplinary arts and sciences education: Students will have a wider perspective when solving problems related global issues in society.

What skills are needed for being active globally? Do you think only English skills are enough?

I think the most important skill is the ability to logically elaborate your thoughts to others with different thoughts and cultural backgrounds while at the same time sincerely respecting them.

IGS assembles students from all over the world and takes advantage of this to help you develop the knowledge and communication skills that are needed to be active globally.
