Career Support Training

Supporting students aiming to become
professionals active in the international community

The College of International Relations offers career education courses from the second year onward to support career development based on students' interests and desired career paths.

Global Simulation Gaming (2nd year)

This is a course in which students take on the role of actors (actors in international society: countries, international organizations, etc.) and engage in actual diplomatic negotiations. By thoroughly researching their own actors and engaging in actual diplomatic negotiations, students develop knowledge of international affairs from multiple perspectives and deepen their understanding of the real international society.

Through group simulation activities, students naturally acquire communication skills, the ability to identify problems on their own, and the ability to take action to solve them, such as team management and the difficulty of negotiating against the backdrop of each actor's national interests.

Professional Workshop (2nd year)

The program offers a total of four classes: three classes in Japanese (International Public Affairs, Business, and Media) and one class in English for international students from Global Studies Major. In each class, in addition to classes given by the instructor in charge, practitioners and graduates active in the relevant field are invited as guest lecturers to provide students with the opportunity to learn the know-how and experience necessary for a career in the relevant field and to think deeply about their own post-graduation career development.
