Department of English Language and Communication 02
Small class size
Develop genuine English skills.
We develop students' English skills step by step in small classes, which allows us to easily gauge their level of understanding and progress. By increasing the opportunities to communicate in English, students will learn about diverse positions and ways of thinking, understand others creatively, and develop the ability to form and communicate their own opinions.
During the four years of study
You can study abroad for up to two years.
Students study abroad at Temple University Japan Campus located on the campus of our university for the first semester of their second year, and at Showa Boston for the second semester of their second year. From their third year onwards, students can study abroad at partner universities around the world (taking classes in English) for an additional six months to a year using the "certified study abroad" program.
