Freshman Course "Researchers and Society"

The "Freshman Course" (two credits) is designed for newly-enrolled students of SOKENDAI with the aim of introducing them to some essential skills and knowledge necessary at graduate level.

In the current society, researchers are expected to have not only expertise in their specialized field but also the capacity to respond to wider society. Therefore, as part of the Freshman Course, we offer an intensive course "Researchers and Society" in which participants learn and discuss researchers' roles in society through workshops and lectures. This course is divided into the following three sections:

"Researchers and Society" (Japanese, FY 2016) is scheduled for April 5-6, 2016. "Researchers and Society" (English, FY 2016) will be delivered in early October. The details of the latter course will be announced on the SOKENDAI website as well as on this website.
