Area and International Studies

All events occurring in today's world are closely interrelated and mutually affect one another. As globalization progresses at an accelerating pace, the notions of existing regional frameworks and boundaries around the world are being greatly shaken and their drastic restructuring is under way. In this course of study, students look closely at the world and its various regions to obtain a deeper understanding of the regions and of the world as seen from regional viewpoints. They also approach diverse problems that arise in the regions from various scientific points of view using widely varying methodologies.

The primary goal of this course of study is to conduct area and international studies while keeping in mind the viewpoint of people living in the world's various regions and focusing on acquiring language abilities. The course provides students with an opportunity to learn about the problems that the world and its regions face.
