"Preliminary Seminar (Research Methods)" further develops the skills students cultivated in "Introduction to Research Methods" for their particular elds of expertise and serves as the link between "Introduction to Research Methods" and the 3rd year seminars students will be taking. This is why taking this subject during the 4th semester is preferred and why "Introduction to Research Methods" is desirable as a prerequisite. "Preliminary Seminar (Research Methods)" courses for each of the four Areas of Study have been established, with classes offered in Japanese during the Fall Semester and classes offered in English during the Spring Semester. Please check the syllabus for detailed information because the area of training emphasized differs depending on the Area of Study (e.g., focus on reading documents, focus on eld work, focus on hands-on practice, etc.). *Subject titles enclosed in parenthesis refer to subjects from the AY 2011 Curriculum.5.1.43rd Year SeminarsAny students interested in advancing to graduate study or nding employment in Japan are strongly encouraged to register for a small-group 3rd year seminar.
