Student Interaction between Japanese-taught and English-taught classes

In these courses, students can participate in either English or in Japanese as instructors summarize and translate in both languages. Additionally, students who have or develop competencies in the Japanese language can enroll in courses conducted in Japanese. This unique system will give students the opportunity to learn about Japan and various countries in Asia.

Each zemi is led by a professor who specializes in each field, and students are required to discuss and research with their fellow members.
