The diversity of international students is cultivated in an education that encourages the exploration of the relationships between students and others, as well as with society as a whole. Specifically, classes are held that 1) promote discussion and exchange of opinions among international students and Japanese students surrounding themes relevant to international students, and 2) identify themes students can closely relate to and explore among both international and Japanese students, and then make presentations on those findings. Through this work, students cultivate the skills to understand the relationships between themselves and various ideas, things, and people. Students will strive to attain the thinking skills needed for university and graduate school study together with the 4 language skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
