早稲田大学 国際教養学部 AO入試 志望理由書 提出例(豊永 郁子 教授参考)
Dear Admission Office,
First and foremost, I would like to thank for the opportunity given, and in this letter I will do my best to explain my motivation in applying for School of International Liberal Studies at Waseda University, hoping to pursue a major in International Politics Studies and American History later in my academic years. I would be more than grateful if you could kindly give it a read and grant me an admission. During the in-person interview, I would also be delighted to expand more on my area of studies, previously participated activities and what I wish to achieve with liberal studies curriculum including study abroad program.
In Europe, our allies and partners are coping with Russian aggression, ranging from cyber attacks and energy coercion to conventional military attempt, prolonging Brexit and a renewed emphasis on nuclear weapons. At the same time, Europe grapples with the world’s most significant migration crisis since World War II. In Asia, satellite images of China’s aggressive island-building activities are widely viewed as corroborating that nation’s designs to control the air and sea space far from its shores. Who is the true leader of the world? America seems to be searching for its changing role in a changing world. Many journals wrote, during President Trump’s first official Asia tour, the precipitous erosion of America’s decades-long hegemony in the region has been painfully apparent. Heydarian wrote. In a surreal twist of events, a communist regime in China has now emerged as the unlikely guardian of globalization and multilateral diplomacy.
Important factor to consider is, paradox of enduring superpower status despite lessening global influence, as well as the vision for U.S. foreign policy and American public support for international engagement. If there is a theme in American grand strategy that has persisted for the past 70 years, it is that taking a leading role in the world is generally to the benefit of U.S. interests. Those interests have remained remarkably consistent – ensuring the security of U.S. territory and citizens, upholding treaty commitments to include the security of allies, ensuring a liberal economic order in which American enterprise can compete fairly and upholding the rule of law in international affairs, including respect for human rights. Looking ahead, the United States remains a key international actor, despite the evolving geopolitical arena and the concerns about the Trump administration’s policies. We must carefully watch the international political climate.
We live in a very thrilling time full of innovations and changes, however, people’s way of living is threatened and many are turning to security. But we must advocate for “Responsible nationalism” not to follow the path of President Trump. I feel the strong need to study Social Science, American History and International Politics to continue my research on this topic and further gain my own perspectives to unlock different pockets of opportunities in today’s competitive global workplace. And in order for me to attain high-level education and equip myself with what is needed to survive the next decades of globalization and competition, it is extremely important for me to study various international studies among like-minded students at Waseda where liberal studies is offered. Studying abroad in relevant school that excel in the field of studies would be an enriching experience. Thank you very much for reading and I am very much looking forward to hearing good news.
