Model of GJP Curriculum
GJP is a new program which incorporates a cutting-edge Japan studies program into our highly acclaimed program on international relations. The GJP curriculum is based on a matrix in which two main subjects (IR and Japan studies) intersect two languages (English and Japanese). This matrix is designed to help students understand positions and roles of Japan in the contemporary international community through interdisciplinary and multiple viewpoints. You can place your research interests in the matrix to effectively design your studies in Kyoto.
