To achieve your goal of employment in the media industry, the student-initiated Media course is the place for students to extend their own learning.
The Student-initiated media course is a practical job placement support course for students aspiring to the media industry.
The course has sent off many of our former students to the media industry such as a reporter for the Sankei Newspaper and an announcer for Sakuranbo TV etc.
The conditions for the course are enthusiasm and continuous effort.
To break through the barrier to obtain employment in the media industry a strong will and continuous effort is required.
The lecturers have rich experience in the broadcasting and publishing industries, and many are invited from off-campus.
Lecturers experienced in the field are guides to connect the efforts of students to employment in the media industry.
Students will thoroughly learn the basics and advanced techniques required for media jobs such as the ability to understand current issues, language skills, English ability, presentation skills, improved planning skills, as well as prepare for recruitment exams and interviews.
The student-initiated media course is, however, a place where students participate voluntarily and improve with friendly competition.
The course meets outside of class hours and does not provide credits for graduation.
In other words, it is an extracurricular activity toward your dreams.
Join the course in the first year and work hard.

News Certificate prep support
Student-initiated media course recommends getting News Certificates. Study current affairs and be prepared for the test.Since last year the cost of the textbook and examination fees are covered by the course and students can take the exam on campus.
A message from the leader
In the student-initiated media course, students can learn even more expertise that is not offered in the university lectures.
In Industry Research, we learn about the industry in more detail from guest lecturers. Students develop a clearer idea of the jobs they want, and this is an opportunity to hear directly from those working in the media.
Use your own initiative by participating in activities off campus.
Go outside. It is an opportunity to broaden your own perspectives.
I sensed many things when I went off campus.
If you are interested, please come to the student-initiated media course.
