早稲田大学 文化構想学部 JCulP AO入試 英文志望理由書 提出例(源 貴志
To common knowledge, Eurasia is the largest continental area on Earth, comprising all of Europe and Asia, located primarily in the Northern and Eastern Hemispheres bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the Pacific Ocean to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and by Africa, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Indian Ocean to the south.Although there is not clear physical separation between, thee division between Europe and Asia as two different continents is a historical social construct. However, looking at google map, it makes us wonder how the two virtual continents interacted and stayed independent from each other.
Firstly, I would like to use a moment to express gratitude for the opportunity given, and in this short letter I will do my best to explain my motivation in applying for JCulP at Waseda University. I understand this is an extremely unique program offered by a prestigious school targeting students who wish to receive education in English and learn about Japanese cultures in comparison to other cultures. In fact, I am hoping to focus on acquiring beyond-academic English skills and pursue courses in International Culture, Japanese History and Economic studies throughout my academic years. I would be more than grateful if you could kindly give it a read and allow me to proceed. During the in-person interview, I would be delighted to expand more on my area of studies, previously participated activities, personal background and what I wish to achieve with the curriculum including study abroad program.
I took part in a study abroad program this past summer, there my biggest findings were 1) Education programs and mandatory curriculum are very unique to each country and some countries only study very brief history about Japan 2) Whether it’s something we read on the internet, the news or textbook, a lot of the content has been translated and original interpretation may differ, due to above reasons, being able to understand in English without bias and taking control of what I study would have huge impact on my academic intelligence. In addition, as a responsible citizen to represent this country in the future, I wish to study about my own heritage so that I can possibly teach someone who doesn’t know much about Japan. The best way to learn what the future has in store for us is to look to the past. I strongly believe that discussion and presentation based classes promote active thinking and would really help with building academic skills, even real life skills. Therefore, I am only considering JCulP or attending a school overseas as my potential academic paths.
What was connecting the two continents – Silk Road – part of it still exists, in the form of a paved highway connecting Pakistan and the Uygur Autonomous Region of Xinjiang, China. It would be very interesting to study the ecological emergence of silk road, exchanges of people, religion, goods and everything that took place. I can’t imagine what things are like where the two continents collide on the map, Japan somewhat plays a role as peacemaker in the world, but is there something we can learn from how cultures mix in these areas? Studying one thing may not promise a bright future, however, there are unlimited opportunities for our generation. In order for me to attain high-level education and equip myself with what is needed to capture opportunities in the age of globalization, it is extremely important for me to study my roots on top of various international studies among like-minded students at Waseda where intensive studies is offered. Thank you very much for taking the time to read and I am already excited to join such a great school next year.
