Here you can get an idea of what Open Campus Day looks like:

Briefing about the School

Faculty members from the School of Politics Science and Economics give a briefing about the unique characteristics of the school, as well as the curriculum and admissions. This gives prospective students a chance to listen in person to our professors speak passionately about the school in a way that cannot be communicated by a brochure.

“English-based Degree Program at the School of Political Science and Economics” – Presentation by Professor Kohei KAWAMURA

“Learning in English” – A video featuring Professor Marisa KELLAM

Mock Lectures

Professors from the School of Political Science and Economics give mock lectures to high school students and their parents on Open Campus Day. The lectures are all so popular that there is standing room only!!
We are sure the students get a real sense of what study at a university is like and how it differs from high school!
