Courses available to KUINEP students

Subjects covered

Courses available to KUINEP students span a broad range of disciplines, including environmental studies, physics, economics, politics, and social studies. Some of the subjects covered offer a fresh perspective on Japan, while others address topical global problems. Each course usually carries two university credits.

KUINEP students must take at least six courses per semester. It is recommended that students mainly select from among the more than 200 offered in English by the Institute for Liberal Arts and Sciences (ILAS). Details on these courses are available via:
http://www.z.k.kyoto-u.ac.jp/introduction/la-english. English-taught courses are also available from other Faculties.

Students with advanced Japanese-language skills may take regular, Japanese-taught courses at their Faculty with permission from the lecturers.

Japanese Language Courses

ILAS offers Japanese Language Courses at three levels -- elementary, intermediate, and advanced. Students will be required to take a placement test at the beginning of each semester to determine their proficiency levels. KUINEP students may take a maximum of seven sessions per week, each worth two credits. Evaluations will be based on attendance, participation, and examination results, and be included in the official transcript issued at the end of each semester.
