    About the Program

    The College of International Relations strives to educate specialists to meet the needs of an increasingly multi-faceted, specialized and complex international society. The College consists of 2 departments – the Department of International Studies, the Department of International Liberal Arts,– with each department providing varied and specialized education to meet the needs of our times. In particular, since it is now absolutely essential to develop the ability to communicate freely in foreign languages, we have active student exchange programs with several other schools and universities in Asia, Europe and the U.S., and we encourage our students to go abroad for a shorter or medium period of time.
