Communication and Citizenship
This course explores the influential role that race plays in shaping one’s interactions with "Others". To understand the deep interconnections between race and daily life, Critical Race Theory (CRT) is employed to study inequalities in society.
Language and Identity
This course introduces students to the role of language in creating, maintaining, and changing personal, social, and political identities. Key themes covered in this course include individual and group identities, dialect, religion, gender, ethnicity, nationalism, language policy, and multi/translingualism.
Globalization and Gender
This course focuses on the impact of globalization in Asia from the perspective of gender. Students read and discuss how globalization has impacted social, economic, political, and cultural changes in Asian countries, and how these changes have had effects on gender roles.
We envision our graduates to contribute to the development of a multicultural society by offering diversified perspectives and a global mindset to every task they face. Possible careers that require advanced intercultural competence are, but not limited to, the fields of: teaching languages (English, Japanese); translation and interpreting; international development or working for global companies/organizations.
