Subjects taught at Meiji Gakuin University can be roughly divided into two types. One is specialized subjects offered by a specific faculty. The other is elective courses that any student can take, and these encompass a wide variety of areas, including subjects in the humanities like foreign languages, philosophy, and literature, social sciences such as history and cultural anthropology, natural sciences such as mathematics and chemistry, and courses related to health and the sports sciences. Meiji Gakuin offers elective courses spanning such a wide range of fields because we consider it very important to take a multifaceted approach, considering various perspectives when attempting to solve the various problems that arise in our world daily. Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a turning point in the course of human history, so we hope you will cultivate such broadened perspectives and deepened knowledge through the elective subjects we offer.
