A new course is being offered through the Kwansei Gakuin University Cross-Cultural College program (KGU CCC). The Global Career Seminar is the latest in a suite of core courses for the KGU CCC Certificate Program, a collaborative education project between Japan and Canada. The project is a partnership between Kwansei Gakuin University and three Canadian university partners - Mount Allison University, the University of Toronto and Queen's University. The program creates unique and interactive learning opportunities for students to explore contemporary issues facing both countries.
Students participating in the Global Career Seminar course will engage in online learning sessions with the Japanese and Canadian students and will also have the opportunity to study in Japan during Reading Week. Travel and accommodation for the session at KGU will be largely subsidized because of generous funding provided by the Japanese government.
The International Programs Office is now accepting applications from Queen's students who are interested in participating in the 2012-13 KGU CCC Global Career Seminar. More information about this learning project and the course can be found on the IPO website under the Study Abroad section. There is also a KGU CCC program website at http://ccc-canada.jp/english/index.html. KGU representatives will be visiting Queen's University for an information session on Wednesday 19 September, 5:30-6:30pm in room 208, Kingston Hall.
