    About the Program

    Students enroll in the School of International and Liberal Studies at Waseda. In 2004, SILS was established with an original concept and curriculum designed to contribute to the development of the following types of students:

    *Students who aspire to try to resolve the problems facing our globalizing world*Students who are conscious of the distinctiveness of their own culture but also aim to live harmoniously in a multi-cultural society

    *Students who understand the fundamentals of various academic fields and also have interests in innovative, interdisciplinary scholarly pursuits

    *Students with the ability to express their own views in a foreign language.

    Students have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves into Japanese society and culture as they take the same courses as local Japanese students. This type of education prepares students to actively participate in and contribute to modern society.
