Educational Program Overview: Optional Programs Offered by Osaka University

Osaka University offers the following educational programs for students who wish to build further upon the experience of living in a global environment in our new student housing. These programs are aimed at helping students develop into professionals who will "think globally and act locally" with 1) the sophistication needed to make sound social judgments grounded in a broad perspective, 2) a global outlook that will enable them to have meaningful interactions with people from different cultural backgrounds, and 3) the design-mindedness and unfettered imagination to envision wide-ranging, interdisciplinary networks.

(1) Cross-Cultural Understanding Program

Through activities including group work, international students and students from Japan will work together to build a deeper understanding of one another's cultures and traditions, and develop the ability to think and make decisions from a global perspective.

(2) Sophistication, Global Outlook, and Design-Mindedness Workshop

In this open education-based program, students will draw upon the University's knowledge base and work and create in partnership with industry and civil society to develop the abilities that the international civil society leaders of the future will need.
