The Professional Graduate School of Akita International University, named the “Graduate School of Global Communication and Language,” is truly unique and an appropriate professional graduate school for this globalized society.

Our graduate school consists of three programs: English Language Teaching Practices, Japanese Language Teaching Practices, and Global Communication Practices. These three programs are intended to provide specialized courses to support the acquisition of knowledge and practice, in order to train highly specialized professionals who can play an active role in the international community.

In the AIU graduate school, all courses are taught in English, except for some subjects in the Japanese Language Teaching Practices program. Furthermore, in order to accept excellent students from all over the world, as graduate schools in western societies do, the screening of applicants is strictly conducted on the basis of documents submitted. Through such new and unconventional features, we aim to establish a graduate school of global standards.

We eagerly anticipate applications from ambitious individuals.
