Elective Courses are available to second year students or above. There
are two types of course currently available: S1/S2 courses, and S3 courses.
Students who wish to develop their English language skills can select classes
according to specific areas of interest. A range of different courses are
available, and specific courses may also vary each semester. Course descriptions
are available to students at the time of enrollment. Classes are taught
in English, and students are required to participate actively during the
class using the English language. More information about these courses
is available from the EEC Office.
Two courses (S1/S2) are offered as intensive classes during summer and spring vacations. Students can take English language courses in our partnership academic institutions in overseas for about 3 - 4 weeks. Those who complete the courses and take before-and-after classes in Japan receive 2 credits.
The S3 course is taken as a regular class over fifteen weeks during the
semester, rather than as a vacation intensive class. The course content
taught during these classes is expected to improve their English communication
skill. Course themes in the past have included Introductory Interpretation,
Business English, Academic Reading, Writing Strategies, etc. Course descriptions
for the S3 classes will also be available at registration time, and students
will be able to make selections according to their own individual preferences.
