Research Seminar

Seminar Outline


The Research Seminar is a small class in which each faculty member in charge of Major Subjects Courses provides supervision in their respective areas of expertise. In principle, students study under the same faculty member for two years and write a graduation thesis. In addition to classroom readings and research presentations, there are also seminars that involve off-campus research and study camps. Research Seminar has the longest tradition of the three pillars of the major subject curriculum (Research Seminar, PCP, and Independent Research Project) offered at Mita, and the ability to think logically and express oneself, as well as the connections with seniors, juniors, and peers, developed over the two years, will be an asset in their future.
