Students will belong to one of three courses that have been established based on Hiroshima University’s vast experience (Cultural Creation Course, Technical Creation Course, Social Implementation Course), where they will acquire advanced specialist skills. Courses are selected based not on students’ majors as undergraduates, but rather in accordance with their reasons for joining the program and career plans. Students from the three respective courses will then form teams, and take up the challenge to resolve multicultural coexistence issues in disadvantaged regions, from a multilateral perspective of cultural creation, technical creation and social implementation.
