What is the Field Research Project?

The Field Research Project is a seminar-based program for students in their third and fourth year of study. The purpose of this program is to help students acquire in-depth expertise and use the results of their research to write their graduation thesis. During the session and long vacations, students will continue their seminar study, focusing on practical training off campus. The program to be implemented will be determined each semester.
