Outline and Purpose of the Course Students engaging in international fieldwork will conduct on-the-ground investigation or data collection related to their individual research topics (e.g., the collection of primary data, which include the opinions of those on the ground and the collection of secondary data such as those found in museums or libraries). This class is adopted as a “global education subject (basic)” (i.e., a mandatory subject for all students under the Master of Education program (Interdisciplinary Studies in Education Division)). It aims to allow students to experience field investigation related to their master’s dissertation in an international institution (based in Japan or overseas), in an overseas research institution, or do field research overseas.
Course Goals ・Students should be able to promptly and effectively communicate with relevant people within and outside the school regarding their fieldwork and take the lead when making the necessary arrangements
