Culture and the Arts

No education would be complete without a thorough exploration of culture and the arts. Culture is what connects us to our environments and helps us make sense of our world. Perceptions of the world can be translated and expressed in fascinating ways through the arts. Continuing Education courses in Culture and the Arts are meant to enrich your world through study of Japanese culture, Western cultures, and the mediums through which culture is created and expressed.

The below tables provide information on course schedules and fees. Courses run for ten weeks unless otherwise specified. Please note that not all courses run each semester. The columns on the right indicate which semesters the course is scheduled. Schedules may be subject to change, so please check for updates on this website periodically.
