Study about Global Japanese Studies (with the focus on Media Art) in Japan

Nhu Dinh Nguyen

"Nhu Dinh Nguyen (Vietnam)´╝îDepartment of Global Japanese Studies, School of Global Japanese Studies (English Track) "

For the first two years at Meiji University, I had the opportunity to take many classes from such different perspectives of Global Japanese Studies. From Japanese politics to Japanese fine art, from sociology to Japanese film histories; such diversified courses have not only given me a solid foundation to focus on Media Art from next year, but also put many things into perspective as I have had the opportunity to live in Tokyo and observe what I have learned at school in real life.

Meiji University not only helps me find my passion, but also gives me an opportunity of education in one of the most prestigious universities in Japan. From awarding me the Meiji Incentive Scholarship, nominating me for a MEXT scholarship to assisting me with paperwork, the Meiji University International Student Office has assisted me wholeheartedly even before I arrived in Japan, which I will forever appreciate.

Studying at Meiji University is absolutely a surreal experience that I am cherishing every day I have the chance to study and to live. I am looking forward to the future where I can apply what I have studied in real life.

Thank you, Meiji University!
