Summer 2020 is NOT cancelled (UMAP-COIL Joint Program)
Kansai University/IIGE is pleased to announce the 2020 UMAP-COIL Joint Program, to be conducted 100% online in response to the current predicament due to the spread of the coronavirus. The call for applications is now open, with a deadline of July 10th.
Up to 50 students from all over the world will be invited to participate in a seven-week online program. This course is designed to give students opportunities to consider global citizenship with regard to key contemporary social issues in international settings, taking international and domestic perspectives. Students will examine a range of broad themes relating to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including topics on foreign policy, international affairs, trade and finance, and defense and security. In addition, we will explore more specific areas of contemporary interest, for example, aspects of health and wellbeing, international approaches to education, and business innovation and development. The course is designed to be responsive to topical and immediate global concerns and will draw upon themes and materials as they develop.
