Annual Plan of the Project

Three participating colleges will co-manage a three-semester-long undergraduate joint major (or sub-major, minor-major) program. Each college will take responsibility of managing one semester program while providing two CAMPUS Asia core courses at least (one course conducted in English, and one course conducted in the language of the host college).
Three colleges will also co-operate a two-week-long intensive summer school in which faculty members and students of the three colleges participate as a lecturer or as a visiting student.
Three colleges will also co-host an annual student conference to help students understand perspectives of other countries

Academic Field

convergence studies

The academic filed of the project is “convergence studies.” Participating students will have an opportunity to explore issues of their interest from an inter-disciplinary or cross-disciplinary perspective, and to design and conduct a research beyond traditional discipline boundaries.

Number of Exchange Students

about eight students a year

Each college will select about eight students a year (the exact number of students will vary depending on the budget situation of each college) and these selected students will take six core courses together participating in the three-consecutive-semester-long ARS program.
Each college will also select about eight students a year for the two-week-long intensive summer school. Some of the ARS students can also participate in summer school, if they want to (the maximum total number of student participants of summer school will be thirty because of the availability of accommodation).
Each college will also select about six or eight students a year for annual student conference.
Finally, in addition to the above mentioned three programs, each college will also send and receive exchange students up to a maximum of eight students a year, if budget situation allows.
