Faculty of International Communication

The Faculty of International Communication was founded in April 2005.
Today, women in Japan are entering an increasing number of fields in a society that is placing more emphasis on internationalization and a good business sense.

In order to address these needs, the Faculty of International Communication teaches business knowledge and helps students acquire a high level of practical English. Our goal is to impart leadership ability and practical skills to our students; two things that are necessary for women who wish to succeed in todayfs society.

The program is designed to respond to the wide ranging interests of students and incorporates a flexible system that features two broad tracks of study: the English Communication Course and the International Business Course.

Communication skills cannot be developed in the classroom alone. Students of the Faculty of International Communication will develop their skills through experience in the real world, where they will develop an understanding of different cultures and customs firsthand. Such experience will nurture the good judgment and decisiveness that are necessary elements of a forward-looking business sense.

If your passion for English is not limited to the classroom but extends to such things as club activities, student council, then the Faculty of International Communication can help you develop the skills you need to succeed in the wider world.

English Communication Course

The English Communication Course is taught by a diverse faculty. The level of this course is very high, and focuses on increasing studentsf practical English skills to enable them to be active participants in global society.

About 70% of English classes within this department are taught by native speakers of English. Standardized tests such as TOEIC and TOEFL are actively used, as well as presentation and debating skills, in order to make students highly employable. English lessons take full advantage of the CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) facilities to develop an environment for students to improve their English proficiency.

The curriculum itself is very flexible. Both the English Communication and International Business courses are further supported by other interdisciplinary courses.

International Business Course

The International Business Course teaches students both English communication skills and essential business knowledge.International management, international economy, international politics, and information science are all studied to help students meet the demands of the international society of today. Students are taught how to improve their media and technology literacy that are relevant to the world business. Diplomats, leaders of NGOs, and key international business figures, are invited to give lectures so that students can gain a clear understanding of current trends in global society.
