Message From the President

Welcome to Seinan Gakuin University. We are honored that you have accessed our homepage and are interested in our University. As Seinan Gakuin approaches her 100th Anniversary, our goal in the 21st century is to “Impact the World.” We hope everything we attempt will have an impact on the world in which we live.

There has never been a time in human history that is as exciting and challenging as the age in which you and I live. As you prepare for, or continue, your university education the whole world lies before you. Since we live in a world that is rapidly becoming a community without borders, the opportunities which lie before us are almost limitless. The world community continues to become more and more interconnected socially, economically, and politically. Decisions or events in one country rapidly ripple across the globe making an impact on every nation. The pace of change can be breath-taking. Opportunities to contribute locally and globally are available to everyone who accepts the challenge.

While it is an exciting time to be alive, the challenges we face in education as well as in other areas of life can be daunting. The demands to be innovative and creative in research and education have never been greater. Our highly trained faculty is committed to providing the highest level of education possible. The needs of every student are taken into consideration as the curriculum is prepared.

At the same time, the faculty is committed to the highest level of academic research and scholarship. Having published in a wide range of academic journals, professors implement their research in both teaching and contributing to the community, both locally and internationally. Many are guest lecturers in other universities in Kyushu and around the world.

The International Studies program is one of the oldest exchange programs in Japan. Reaching around the globe, our students have opportunities to study in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, France, Norway, Finland, Netherlands, Italy, Denmark, Czech, Hungary, German, Iceland, Poland, Australia, China, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia and Philippines. The list continues to grow. There are also intensive language programs sponsored by the University in the spring and summer.

The greatest investment any nation or individual can make for the future is an investment in education. The future is yours. We are committed as a University to investing in your education and in your future. Why don’t you consider investing in your future as a student at Seinan Gakuin University. Working together, we can “Impact the World” in the 21st century.

K. J. Schaffner
