The University of Tsukuba’s undergraduate program of International Social Studies provides students with rich opportunities to learn about and understand the implications of such events.The program allows students to earn a Bachelor of Arts (International Social Sciences) through classes taught in English. It focuses on a comprehensive and multidisciplinary study of international affairs, including the study of languages other than English, and analytical methods drawn from social sciences and related fields.
