Essential points of the Department of Secondary Education, Japanese Education Course
This course features “development of all-round teachers of Japanese studies who excel at any field related to Japanese education.” Students learn about Japanese education covering a wide range of fields in modern Japanese, Japanese and Chinese classics, and acquire methods to teach Japanese effectively. Students are exposed to different areas and a higher level of general versatility. Several subjects common to the English Education Course such as “Modern People and Language” and “Comparative Language Cultural Theory” are offered. We develop teachers who can understand “Japanese” as a “language,” from the larger perspective of the relationship between English and Japanese. In addition, we aim at developing active teachers of the Japanese language through activities based on experience as educational volunteers.
