Thinking, getting messages across, communicating with others? --all these acts are performed through the use of “language”. The ability to use language is what distinguishes us as human beings. Since ancient times, our acquisition of language has enabled us to establish diverse civilizations and cultures as well as to record our own activities. No matter how much times may change, the importance of language in human society never will. The present globalized society is in need of researchers who can take a fresh but objective look at language, gain mastery of it, and hand it down to future generations.
Students are trained to be highly specialized researchers and businesspeople with skills such as understanding the mechanisms of language, having a perfect command of it, and discerning what is behind language.
One of the distinctive characteristics of learning at the School of Language Education is that university graduates and working adults alike have the opportunity to make contributions on the scene of global exchange as language researchers and international communicators.
In the program of “Japanese Language Education”, which, together with the other two programs, comprises the School of Language Education, we educate those who wish to deepen relationships with people in the world through Japanese teaching.
In the “Comparative Civilizations and Cultures” program, we develop those who wish to enhance their understanding and appreciation of world civilizations and who will play an important role in the preservation and development of world peace and cultures.
Finally, the program in “English Language Education” enables students to acquire a high level of practical English proficiency, and aims to produce outstanding English teachers, researchers, and international entrepreneurs.
