Student Voice: [GS] My college time is going to end, it is time to review

Outline your course and studies. Give us an overview of your studies and course schedule from the 1st year to now.

My major focuses on international affairs and developing critical thinking for students. In the 1st year, courses are mainly about basic knowledge about academic writing, and an introduction to common international affairs. In the 2nd year, students are allowed to participate in global stimulation gaming in order to deepen their knowledge about negotiating and working in international organizations. From the 3rd year, students choose their main field to dig into to start thinking about their thesis. In the 4th year, students develop and finish a graduation thesis.

Can you describe your class choices for the previous semester/current semester?

I think it is optimal to know what you want to do in university and in the future after graduation. For example, since I knew that I would look for jobs in Japan and I would be busy preparing for job hunting in my 3rd and 4th years, it would be necessary to finish most of the credits in the 1st and 2nd years. Therefore, in my first 2 years, I registered for the maximum number of credits to make time for internships, job-hunting, and my graduation thesis in 3rd and 4th years.

Message for other students

College years are the last steps before we enter our 'real' adulthood and work in companies, so make your 4 years full of blasts, make a lot of friends, go to a lot of places, learn new things, and do not forget to think about how you want to become in the future.
