Department of English

Global Studies Major, English Language Major

The fundamental educational goal of the Department of English is to provide students with practical English communication skills and the cultural understanding that will serve as the foundation for those skills. Given the globalization of society, the department also strives to cultivate students with plurilingual skills (Japanese, English and Chinese) and international understanding (fundamental knowledge of the cultures, societies and businesses of various foreign countries). To that end, the department offers two majors, the global studies major and the English major, and provides enhanced specialization corresponding to the goals and circumstances of individual students. There are also plenty of courses designed for students who wish to become English-language teachers.
