Poolefs American style liberal arts curriculum begins
with a general education emphasizing both basic knowledge and personal growth.
Students also choose a specialized program such as Area Cultural Studies or
Intercultural Studies and Service. English is required for Japanese students
and a structured two-year course in advanced Japanese language is available for
foreign students. Chinese, Korean, French, German and Italian languages are
also taught. In addition to regular coursework, students may design and execute
their own fieldwork study in a domestic or foreign setting. All students are
encouraged to take advantage of Poolefs overseas study opportunities.
