For such community, the variety of FLA curriculums provides the solid foundation to learn and acknowledge the cultural differences and to think globally with a critical mind. In many of my classes from the IBE major, I could deepen my understanding of timely issues and controversial topics of the Japanese and the global economy. Furthermore, the in-class discussions encourage students to share their values and experiences, which become a great resource for a multicultural understanding. The higher level IBE courses often include group assessments, allowing students to further hone their presentational and teamwork skills. Altogether, I strongly believe Sophia’s liberal arts education is enriched by the skillful guidance of the professors and each student’s contribution of their distinctive experiences.
