Research the interaction of culture and society from multifaceted points of view, beyond the notion of national boundaries

This is the age when about 1 billion people cross international borders every year. Many peoples and cultures interchange with one another and give birth to new culture. We study these interacting cultures from multifaceted points of views such as tourism, international relations, sociology, and cultural anthropology. In order to cultivate further high-level foreign language skills that are applicable in such fields as tourism, the airline industry, and international organizations – in addition to a TOEIC® score of 800 points or higher by graduation – we strive for the acquisition of a "language plus one", beyond English. Through your learning in the Department of Tourism and Transnational Studies, go beyond ideas of national borders and spread your wings in the world.

Beyond "tourism"

"Tourism" is not simply sightseeing. We believe it is "the movement and encounters of people". Take another look at the influence "tourism" has on modern society.

Beyond "national borders"

Overcoming national borders, various cultures intermingle and give birth to new cultures and values. Look at various phenomena from the points of view of transnational culture and global society.

Beyond "English"

By acquiring one more language in addition to English, your possibilities expand endlessly. You select German, French, Spanish, Chinese, or Korean as a compulsory elective to study.
