Distinctive Courses in 2018

In the 2018 academic year, 442 courses were offered as credit-transfer subjects.
Among the many credit-transfer courses, the one that the University Consortium Kyoto especially recommends is the "Plaza Recommended Courses."
"Plaza Recommended Courses" are distinctive courses offered at Campus Plaza Kyoto that have been developed in cooperation with the University Consortium Kyoto and the University for credit transfer.
In fiscal 2018, 15 courses will be offered, including the Kyoto World Heritage PBL course, which tackles the discovery and resolution of issues related to World Heritage sites in Kyoto.

Kyoto World Heritage PBL Course

The Kyoto World Heritage PBL Course is a course that develops PBL*1 in the field of World Heritage in Kyoto. In the class, mainly through group learning, students discover the problems faced by World Heritage sites and their surrounding areas on their own and propose solutions. In this course, students work together with students from other universities to solve problems through dialogue with people involved in World Heritage sites, which is a course unique to the transfer of credits of the consortium. If you want to collaborate with students from other universities, or if you are interested in Kyoto and cultural heritage, please take this course.
* PBL (Project Based Learning) is active learning that identifies and solves problems.
