Graduate Student Career Path Support Programs
In order to achieve your career goal, pursuing your study on your specialized field at your graduate school and utilizing those knowledge and skills you have obtained through the research process into various fields are important. These programs aim students to improve “research ability/ teaching ability and specialized skills,” “improve the ability to develop a career path,” and “the ability to solve the social issues.” Programs to acquire practical skills such as English writing and presentations skills, and seminars to acquire basic skills required for creating a career path such as method of designing the class or project management skills are offered. Also, seminars to have further understanding of current situations on developing a career path are offered. Graduate students can choose the program they need and join the program for free of charge.
