Course Purpose and Outline
Equipping students with the fundamental knowledge needed to become global citizens.
Working on the global stage requires linguistic skills – in English and other languages. This will allow students to become aware of disease prevention needs in different parts of the world, and to understand the history, religions and national policies of other cultures. Students will gain fundamental knowledge needed to become global citizens.
In addition to linguistic skills, people who are active in the global arena require wide-ranging knowledge and an education which incorporates understanding of the culture and religious background of different countries and the risks inherent in each country and region. This course will provide an overview from which students can acquire the basic information that a truly global individual needs to know.

Note(s) to students
Due to the style of this course, enrollment will be limited, with priority given to Disease Prevention Science Course (DPSC) students. In this course various research lab visits will be conducted. Research visits refer to a learning style wherein students take a tour the research labs and universities of the instructor in addition to the lecture. These will allow the students to expand their perspectives and create valuable networking for their future. For this year’s global trends course, in addition to lessons at this university, lessons at JETRO Headquarters, JICA Headquarters, and at our sister university, Ochanomizu Women’s Univeristy will be held.
