This is a high level advanced language course (on the same level as Seminar A and Japanese-English Translation; thus, higher than the Advanced Japanese Language courses). It serves three purposes. First, it serves as an intermediate stage between advanced group language study and independent research. Second, it allows students to familiarise themselves with key concepts and issues of International Relations/International History. Third, it improves the students' ability to read Japanese texts in International Relations/International History.
Using authentic materials of popular and academic works, which are written in contemporary language, the course introduces students both to the basic conceptual terminology in the fields of International Relations/International History, and to how these relate to more recent international and domestic political issues relevant to Japan.
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
