Life Design Program
Career planning support throughout university years
Kwansei Gakuin University supports students' career planning throughout their university years through its 'Life Design Program',a cooperative program between the regular curriculum and non-regularextensional activity, which the university considers part of its general education program.
The Life Design Program encourages students to think about how to live their own life,contribute to society, and what kind of job to choose in order to accomplish these aims.
Students learn about "what kinds of jobs there are in society, and what kind of skills are required for them," while having the opportunity to experience various jobs hands-on in the non-regular program,where they are able to see what occupation best enables them to realize their potential. They are then encouraged to develop their skills through the extension program.
