FALL 2024: An Exploration of Critical Global Topics

In today's world, there are many problems that we have never had to think about before the use of new information technology, genome editing, and cloning technology. There are serious environmental issues such as global warming, and we have to change our society drastically before it is too late by regulating our industries and economies. Through this Japanese course, we are going to utilize critical thinking skills to generate important questions on various globally relevant topics in order to break down large issues and identify critical points within each topic. By the end of the course, students will be equipped with skills to break down large problems into more approachable questions and to critically utilize appropriate text-based resources in Japanese.
