About "Advanced Global Training Project"
Our Graduate School of Integrated Sciences for Global Society (ISGS) is a newly restructured graduate school at Kyushu University founded in April 2014. This graduate school was formerly the Graduate School of Social and Cultural Studies, which has pursued interdisciplinary research and education for the past 20 years. We aim to train professionals with a global mindset by using integrated approaches, and to promote an interdisciplinary education that can help tackle global challenges that humanity currently faces.
Coinciding with the inauguration of the ISGS, the Advanced Global Training Project for Integrated Academic Education was also launched to advance the restructuring of the previous graduate school and to strengthen its global competiveness.
