Helping International Students Find English-Taught Undergraduate and Postgraduate Programs at Japanese Universities

Meiji University

Graduate School of Governance Studies

Master of Public Policy English Track Program

In order to realize a collaborative and participatory society in the coming era, faculty and students must, in consort, devise various measures and carry them out. To that end, our curriculums are designed not only to provide a fundamental grounding through theoretical study or otherwise but also to enable students to take the initiative in learning through case studies and presentations on ongoing issues. In order to implement this approach in a practical manner and at a high level, such personnel as faculty members with extensive practical experience in policy-making and implementation, legal experts such as experts in policy and legal affairs, or specialists in NPOs and NGOs teach courses. In addition, not a few faculty members with abundant experience abroad inspire graduate students to learn more by providing their international perspectives and interaction between faculty members and graduate students.
