2012 Summer School Programme

Faculty of Integrated Arts and Sciences
The University of Tokushima

Welcome to 2012 Summer School Programme

Summer school is a new field for innovation of learning methods. Most of the classes are communication-based leaning (including peer learning) which is our novel project for establishing the holistic study methods in cultural studies. Communication beyond the national boundary will make it possible to establish another standpoint. This will be the first step for multiple standpoints.

This summer school programme is held mainly for the undergraduate who consider student exchange for whole academic year or half the academic year based on the agreement of student exchange between the University of Tokushima.
