Kawakami Ikuo
Dean of Waseda Graduate School of Applied Japanese Linguistics (GSJAL)

The Graduate School of Japanese Applied Linguistics programs are designed to allow students to specialize in Japanese language education, an academic discipline that is indispensable for expanding their career opportunities in the professional field. Since its founding, GSJAL has worked toward the practice of Japanese language education as a form of communication, research and education which is focused on people, and over the years has developed a means of approaching the study and research of Japanese language education that comprehensively addresses the relationships between people and society, people and education, and people and the Japanese language. GSJAL has consequently established a diverse range of courses that allow students to explore Japanese language education in depth through theoretical and practical research and seminars, as well as providing a vast number of opportunities to learn and explore collaborative research such as academic and research conferences.
