Long-Term Credit Course

Some of the courses at the Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences are long-term credit courses.

It is a system designed to provide greater options for learning for those who are willing to study while working. Students in this course can take credits in a planned manner if they request to take courses for a certain period of time that exceeds the standard term of study and their requests are approved.

Students who are accepted for the courses that have a long-term credit option will receive the document, “Information about the Long-Term Credit Course System” (*1) with other admissions-related documents. If you wish to request this long-term option, please read this document carefully, download and fill out the application documents (*2), and submit them to the relevant courses before the deadline.

The 4th Faculty Development Program of the Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences 2016-2017: February 15, 2017 (Wed)

Date & Time: Wednesday, February 15, 2017, 2:00 p.m.
Place: D116 (public lecture hall) in the University of Tsukuba Laboratory of Advanced Research D Building

1. Purpose/Aim
This program aims to organize and systematize Faculty Development (FD) that consists of two levels: Teaching Assistants (TA) and Teaching Fellows (TF) to practice FD activities for fostering future university professionals.
Three FD programs have been implemented already. The school’s faculty members offered model classes and lectures and graduate students gave reports on the results of their on-site hands-on training.
This will be the fourth program and among the graduate students who received the Outstanding TF Award, four TF students will practice TF public classes.
We continue to expect greater participation from faculty members and researchers in addition to graduate students who are or want to be TFs.
