/Class Outline
Students in this course are to gain experience in carrying out small projects to make elucidation and resolution for global issues we confront in modern society. Since various global issues are hierarchically related to multiple factors, it is difficult to solve from one academic filed. Therefore, it is important for problem solving to perceive various issues from a bird’s- eye view and take cross-disciplinary approaches from various academic viewpoints. This course will provide important viewpoints to exclude and solve global issues, through group works by a group of students from various academic fields.
