Course Overview

Studium Generale is a series of introductory level lectures in English by Nagoya University faculty members and external speakers. Topics cover any research field, arts, and business. The main purpose of Studium Generale is to expose students to topics (both academic and non-academic) that are outside of their major of study in an accessible way, as well as to offer practice in listening to lectures in English.
