Message from the Dean

Yoichiro Sato

The College of Asia Pacific Studies (APS) is a learning community that encourages students to gain valuable knowledge and critical thinking skills to challenge the status quo in order to find innovative solutions to our world’s issues. APS pushes students to go beyond conventional thinking and communicate with openness and curiosity in order to expand one another’s knowledge, skills, and life experiences. This approach connects academic learning with practical problem solving to meet the emerging challenges of the Asia Pacific region.

On APU’s multicultural campus, students improve their observational and analytical skills as well as their level of sensitivity to diverse perspectives. Alongside this, the APS curriculum offers students a balanced combination of knowledge in chosen fields of study, life skills necessary for success, along with a global network of friends and colleagues that last a lifetime.
