International Students Seminar

Undergraduates from Kyoto Gakuen University Japan

Faced with the concern about losing touch and failing to compete globally, the Japanese government has established programs to help the flow of international students in and out of the country.

Working closely with the University of Massachusetts Boston, EDR and TAHS successfully hosted 9 undergraduate students from Kyoto Gakuen University (Japan) in August, 2014.

By adopting a learner-initiated teaching model, this international student seminar introduced our students to the academic rigor required to study broad. The students’ learning outcomes were maximized through their active learning of various academic topics and participation in cultural events in Boston. From this program, they understood other cultures in the United States and cultural challenges in the globalizing world.
