Queen's University


Kwansei Gakuin University Cross-Cultural College Canada-Japan Collaborative Program for Educating World Citizens as Future Leaders

Queen's University and Kwansei Gakuin University (KGU) in Japan are proud to announce the establishment of a joint multicultural academic program to benefit a select group of both Queen's and KGU students. Known as the KGU Cross-Cultural College, Canadian and Japanese undergraduate students will take courses with an emphasis on multiculturalism and international studies, as well as joint seminars and internships where these two groups of students will live, study and work together in both countries.

 Program Options
There are two program sessions available through the Cross-Cultural College initiative:

  1. Global Career Seminar(during the Fall and Winter terms)

The Global Career Seminar aims to introduce current business issues, and to provide students with an opportunity to analyze and find solutions for actual problems assigned to them by companies/organizations based in Japan. The seminar will organize students screened and selected from Kwansei Gakuin University (KGU) and its three partner universities into groups. The students will then be given specific business problems, offered by company representatives from corporations such as Toyota and Panasonic, which they will be expected to analyze and propose solutions. During the fall semester pre-seminar internet sessions linking KGU and Canadian university students will be conducted for preparation, and on commencement of the seminar at KGU, further lectures, discussion, and preparation for group presentations will take place. The final presentations will be made to the representatives of the companies that proposed the problems.

Information for the 2014-15 program is to be confirmed

 2.   CCC Summer Programs

The summer program is comprised of four options: The Asian Studies Summer School (ASSS) and the Global Career Seminar (which must be taken together), the Joint Seminar, the Global Internship in Japan, and the Global Internship in Japan and Canada.

 Application Deadline: Friday March 28, 2014, 4:30 PM
