Possible careers after graduating the Global Education Course
In the Global Education Course, students come from not only Japan, but from various countries. Through thinking about education in all over the world, we are cultivating human resources who can work in the field of Japanese language education, Japanese culture, international educational cooperation, science and mathematics education, English communication and cross-cultural understanding. Oversea students who have entered the Global Education Course are expected to not only research about educational sector, but also become "educators"—through visiting Japanese elementary and secondary schools and practicing classes—who learn from the world, think with the world and teach in the world. Here, we would like to introduce some career models of the Global Education Course.
- Mr. A
Mr. A—who wants to engage in Japanese language education and has studied Japanese-language education at a university in his home country—entered the Global Education Course. To acquire the certificate of Japanese-language teacher, he worked on a number of educational practices. His master's thesis summarizes the issues and prospects of Japanese language education in his home country. After returning home, he has started working as a Japanese teacher at a university in his home country.
- Ms. B
After being a mathematics teacher at a secondary school in her home country, Ms. B wanted to conduct a comparative study of mathematics education between Japan and her home country. She had received a scholarship from the Japanese government and entered the Global Education Course. At the graduate school, she observed mathematics classes in Japanese junior high schools, conducted research in her home country, and completed her master's thesis. Her master's thesis was recognized by the Ministry of Education of her home country, and was given a position as an officer in the Ministry of Education.
- Ms. C
Ms. C entered the Global Education Course because she had studied Japanese during her undergraduate years and wanted to conduct a comparative study of Japanese and Chinese education. She also hoped to find a job at a Japanese company in her home country or in Japan by making good use of her Japanese skills. She worked hard to find a career path in her home country or in Japan, and finally got employed at a Japanese company in her home country.
