授業の概要・目的 This course will examine various approaches and topics in the study of Japanese education, culture and society through reading sociological works on Japan. Education is a complex subject partly because everyone, having been educated, has a personal view about what education should be and should not be. However, generalizing from one's own experience can be dangerous. This is one of the reasons why sociological perspectives become important in the field of education.

Students will also learn the nature, purposes and methods of social science research in the field of education and each students will experience a small-scale research project to explore practical aspects of what students have learnt in class. Students will have opportunities to take a close look at what is happening and what has happened in Japanese education.
