ăAlong with the establishment of the Graduate School of Integrated Sciences for Global Society (ISGS), Kyushu University, the Global Training Project for Integrated Academic Education was launched, in order to promote âglobalized education", and "advanced interdisciplinary education".
ăThe previous Graduate School of Social and Cultural Studies of Kyushu University pursued interdisciplinary research and education for the past 20 years. The enrollment ratio of international students exceeded 50% and the completion rate of the doctoral course was 90%.
ăIn April 2014, a newly renamed department, the âGraduate School of Integrated Science for Global Societyâ, was established as part of the restructuring of the Graduate School of Social and Cultural Studies. The aim of the new graduate school is to foster the development of professionals who are better equipped to solve global challenges. In addition, the Leading Program was launched to produce graduates with the skills and innovative capabilities that will enable them to lead Asia forward in the near future.
ăThe "Advanced Global Training Project for Integrated Academic Educationâ was thus established to advance the internationalization of their education and to promote interdisciplinary education.
ăThe Graduate School of Integrated Science for Global Society of Kyushu University sets the following as the two main objectives of "Advanced Global Training Project for Integrated Academic Education":
- Training high-level global professionals through an integrated interdisciplinary education.
- Constructing an advanced global interdisciplinary educational network.
ăTo achieve these two objectives, the project continues to engage in various activities such as:
- ă»Inviting top-level overseas researcher teams
- ă»Holding international seminars and symposiums
- ă»Constructing new educational programs
- ă»Organizing international evaluation teams
