Fundamental of Earth Science I

Let’s explore the Earth and its history together!

Calculus I

Come, and enjoy mathematics!

Introduction to Skills for Success

This course will help you explore why you study and provide you with different learning strategies that can be used immediately in your other courses. Note: This is a very interactive course, so please come prepared to think, share your opinion and discuss the topics in class actively.

Inorganic Chemistry II

This course is possibly best suited for students who already took the Japanese course and want to focus on improving their English.

Quantum Chemistry II

The purpose of this course is to apply quantum mechanics to study molecules. It is an extension of Quantum Chemistry I, although it is easier.

Tuesday Fall 2022

Critical Literary Analysis

In this course we will travel back to March 11, 2011 and its aftermath. We will learn about the triple disaster itself and study a variety of cultural responses (literature, performing arts, cinema, music, etc.). The workload for this course is very high, but except for readings on the theoretical and socio-political background, all readings are available in Japanese, which should ease the workload a bit. Especially at a time when the Japanese government is recommitting to nuclear power, it will be crucial to look back at 2011 and compare the contemporary discourse with today’s situation. If you are not sure this course is for you, you are welcome to just sit in for the first few times!

Linear Algebra I

Linear Algebra is one of the most important tools for mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, engineers, chemists, etc. This course is a linear algebra which is targeted at non-mathematician, i.e. it includes a lot of examples. We will start really slowly with by learning how to solve linear equations systematically and then see how this can help in a lot of applications. If you already took a linear algebra in Japanese, then this course might also be a possibility to learn the English vocabulary for it!

Legal Cultures (E)

Law is deeply connected to culture and society: let’s take a look at different ways of interpreting and applying the law.

Science of Materials

The course is easy, without complicated maths. but it still touches important concepts of science and materials. So you will see some easy formulas and will have to use your brain to listen and understand. You will realize that the different branches of sciences, like mechanics, optics, thermodynamics, chemistry etc are in fact described by the same universal concepts, making the understanding of everything more simple.

Fundamental of Physics I

This is the first of three lecture courses (Fundamentals of Physics I–III) designed to cover the basic classical physics to provide a firm foundation for learning science and engineering, and is offered to undergraduate students in their first year. This course introduces the concepts and laws of classical mechanics. Specifically, the lecture covers various concepts such as Newton’s second law, force, work, kinetic and potential energy, conservation of energy, center of mass and linear momentum. Basic physical and mathematical concepts such as velocity, acceleration, vectors, differentiation and integration are also reviewed.

Political Science Methodology

This class is an introduction to quantitative analysis, from the political science perspective. It uses more math than most social sciences classes, and is probably easier to understand because of it. Because this is an introductory level class, advanced math skills are also not required. You should have an understanding of basic algebra.

Analytical Chemistry

If you would like to challenge yourself in taking this course you are very welcome!

Wednesday Fall 2022

Special Math Lecture: Groups and Their Representations

Come, and enjoy mathematics!

International Migration

This class looks at international migration issues and trends. It should be especially interesting for students with some international experience or interested in spending time abroad.

First Year Seminar

All students are welcome to this seminar! Let’s share the excitement of science!

Basic Seminar A/First Year Seminar

Anyone with interest is welcome to this course. The only thing I ask of you is to leave all the preconception at the door and participate as an individual eager to explore new subjects (just because you are categorized as “Japanese students,” please don’t attempt to “represent” that category: everyone is different).

Analytical Mechanics I

This is the first of two courses in analytical mechanics. Analytical mechanics abstracts from Newtonian mechanics and generalizes it to a versatile framework that can be applied to various areas of physics, such as quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and relativity. After a survey of elementary principles, we discuss the core concepts of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, with special emphasis on symmetry principles, followed by some explicit examples.

Organic Chemistry I

This course was designed to promote understanding introductory organic chemistry and to help students build a logical framework for understanding fundamental organic chemistry. The primary purpose of this course is to help students build a logical framework for understanding fundamental organic chemistry. The course emphasizes how the organic molecular structures and the electron density compositions are related to patterns of organic chemical reactions.

Thursday Fall 2022

Introductory Accounting 1

Thinking about Japanese society in the 21st century from gender perspectives

This course includes not only G30 students but also exchange students from NUPACE. We thus have a diverse group of students of different nationalities. It will be a quite interesting experience for Japanese students to get to know various situations and issues regarding gender.

Comparative Law II (Continental Law) (E)

Let’s learn about the legal systems of the world!

Literary Theory

This course provides an overview of literary theory from the early 20th Century to present day. It explores various theoretical approaches to reading texts. For students new to literary theory, this course can serve as an introduction. For students already familiar with theoretical approaches to literature, it can also extend the knowledge and understanding of such approaches. All reading and discussion will be conducted in English. English-language translations of reading will be distributed when necessary. Students are welcome to consult translated texts in their original language, but the version used for class discussion will be in English. In addition, over the course of the semester, students will undertake a close reading of Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo (2019). At the end of this course, students will have a thorough understanding of multiple approaches to literature, and experience of close reading of a multitude of texts.

Comparative Literature

This course aims to introduce students to a selection of literary works, from the early 19th Century to the early 21st Century, across various cultural and linguistic boundaries. Through close reading of various texts, students will discuss these works in relation to their unique socio-cultural contexts, their narrative and stylistic composition, as well as their role as ‘world literature’. In addition, students will apply these principles through creative practice in writing poetry, prose, or creative non-fiction pieces. At the end of this course, students will have a thorough understanding of multiple creative approaches to writing and comprehending literature, experience of close reading of a multitude of texts, as well as practical creative skills for future practice.

Through critical theory, this course investigates the cultural, political and philosophical implications of globalization. It provides an opportunity to engage in serious critical reflection on questions of progress, multiculturalism, and authority. Although literature is the main focus we will also explore these critical concepts and approaches through other media. In addition, over the course of the semester, students will undertake a close reading of The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon (1965). At the end of this course, students will have a thorough understanding of multiple approaches to critical theory, and experience of close reading a multitude of texts.

Comparative Culture/ David Thomas Henry Wright

This course introduces students to Literary Modernism. As works such as those by Freud, Darwin, Marx, and Nietzsche began to change the world’s ideas in the 19th Century, works of literature around the world underwent a great transformation. Writers such as Woolf, Eliot, Joyce, and Kafka presented revolutionary ideas about aesthetics, creativity, gender, culture and society. Through readings of these and other authors, students will compare and contrast the cultural changes that took place. Although literature is the main focus we will also explore Modernism in other media. All reading and discussion will be conducted in English. Students are welcome to consult translated texts in their original language, but the version used for class discussion will be in English. At the end of this course, students will have a thorough understanding of multiple approaches to literary modernism, and experience of close reading of a multitude of texts.

Fundamentals of Physics III/ Bernard Gelloz

Most of the content of this course is covered in the Japanese high-school curriculum. You are welcome to try it out and see what you think before deciding if you want to continue.

Introductory Microeconomics II/ Maria Martin Rodriguez

Message for the instructor: The course analyzes how economic agents make choices and the implications of these in the market equilibrium and welfare. It is a nice course but we will use some math because you know, you probably know some idiots but we assume that people are rational and don’t make choices randomly 🙂 Please join us if you want to know how rational people think!

BiochemistryII/ Seiji KOJIMA

Message for the instructor: This course is to get knowledge of biochemistry and based on the textbook of Voet.

Fundamental Physics III/ Bernard GELLOZ

Conditions for applying: calculus is necessary (1D, 2D, 3D integrals; derivatives)

Message from Instructor: This course is quite intensive. Two classes per week. Calculus is necessary. New and sometimes complex concepts are introduced. Registration for Fundamental Physics Tutorial IIa (FPTIIa) is recommended. It is a tutorial for this course. Need to spend at least several hours per week studying in order to do well.

Fundamentals of Earth Science 2/ Marc Humblet

Let’s explore Earth together! Don’t hesitate to join the course!

International Politics/ David Green

This is an introductory comparative politics course, aimed at students who are not political science or law majors. As such, we assume students have not studied much political science, and take things from the beginning fairly slowly. This kind of course would be ideal for Japanese students.

Introductory Econometrics II/ Maria Martin-Rodriguez

We are going to focus exclusively on hypothesis testing, for one and two populations. The course is useful as an introduction for those students interested in conducting serious econometric analysis in the close future, but it is tough if you are not familiar with the contents covered in Introductory Econometrics I.

Linear Algebra II/ Henrik Bachmann

Conditions:The Students should have a basic knowledge on Linear Algebra I. An overview can be found here: https://www.henrikbachmann.com/la1_2020.html . But at the beginning of the course we will recall a lot of things and do everything more general, i.e. also students who did not take Linear Algebra I are welcome to join!

Message from the instructor:  If you are a student doing anything related to natural science then you need to have basic knowledge of Linear Algebra (At least if you want to be successful in your research & job). Since the English used in math classes is quite simple compared to other classes (like physics, chemistry, or biology) this class would be a perfect opportunity to try following a lecture taught in English. If you are a student who already had Linear Algebra (In Japanese) then this course is also a perfect opportunity for you to learn the corresponding English words for this course.

Inorganic Chemistry I /Gabor Samjeske

Why not experiencing some English as a Medium for Instruction (EMI) or perhaps refreshing the chemistry knowledge?

Thursday Spring 2021

Comparative Culture/ David Thomas Henry Wright

This course introduces students to Literary Modernism. As works such as those by Freud, Darwin, Marx, and Nietzsche began to change the world’s ideas in the 19th Century, works of literature around the world underwent a great transformation. Writers such as Woolf, Eliot, Joyce, and Kafka presented revolutionary ideas about aesthetics, creativity, gender, culture and society. Through readings of these and other authors, students will compare and contrast the cultural changes that took place. Although literature is the main focus we will also explore Modernism in other media. All reading and discussion will be conducted in English. Students are welcome to consult translated texts in their original language, but the version used for class discussion will be in English. At the end of this course, students will have a thorough understanding of multiple approaches to literary modernism, and experience of close reading of a multitude of texts.

Fundamentals of Biology II/ Maria Vassileva

Fundamentals of Biology 2 is an introductory course into the human physiology. Come to learn how your body works. This will help you understand how to keep yourself healthy, and make sense of all the popular health information (and disinformation!) around you.

You must have studied Statistical Physics II.

Read the description in the the syllabus.

East Asia in World History/ HOPSON Nathan

This is a discussion-based upper-level seminar (for undergraduate 3rd- and 4th-year students and graduate students). It is VERY reading intensive, and the readings are HARD.

Critical Theory/ David Thomas Henry Wright

Through critical theory, this course investigates the cultural, political and philosophical implications of globalization. It provides an opportunity to engage in serious critical reflection on questions of progress, multiculturalism, and authority. Although literature is the main focus we will also explore these critical concepts and approaches through other media. In addition, over the course of the semester, students will undertake a close reading of The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon (1965). At the end of this course, students will have a thorough understanding of multiple approaches to critical theory, and experience of close reading a multitude of texts.

Special Topics in Biology 18/ Maria Vassileva

This course is an introduction to molecular biology and is developed with Japanese students in mind. Even if you don’t study biology, or are not comfortable using English – but would like to try – this course is for you.

Message form the instructor: Studium Generale is the easiest English lectures experience at Nagoya University! It is specifically developed with the purpose of offering exactly this – an experience. An experience in lectures in English (all recorded, so you can stop and listen again at any point!), an experience of learning about fields of science and society outside your major (all at introductory level, so no need to prepare before class and read textbooks), and an experience to discuss various topics with other students in English (both Japanese and international students join this course – make new friends!). Come and expand your horizons. You’ll be surprised how much you can actually learn about the world and yourself in one short semester!

Introduction to East Asian History/ Nathan Hopson

This is a “flipped” lecture class. That means: 1. You will listen to the lectures as homework. 2. We will work on projects during class time.

Condensed Matter Physics II

The purpose of this course is to gain a solid understanding of the basic behavior of electrons and atoms in solids and the consequences on the electrical and thermal properties. The course starts with easy classical models and progresses to more complex models while adding quantum ingredients.

Calculus II: functions of several variables/ Serge Richard

Just come and see

Monday Fall 2020

Contemporary American Politics/ David Green

This course is an introduction to the American political system, which may be of some interest given the United States’ close relations with Japan. The material is not super challenging in my opinion, although there will be quite a bit of English!

Notice: Knowledge of multivariate calculus and linear algebra is necessary.

 

(G)Classical Japanese Literature / Dylan McGee

In this graduate seminar, we will be reading a range of Japanese literary works dating from the Heian to the Edo periods. While most of the students will be reading the texts in English translation, Japanese students are welcome to read in Classical Japanese and/or modern Japanese translations. Discussion will be mostly in English, though there will be close readings of some excerpts in Japanese. One to two students may be admitted on a auditing (not for credit) basis, but only if they are committed to attending regularly for the duration of the semester. Seats are limited, and I will need to prioritize spaces for students who are serious about participating in the class.

Notice: This content for this course will be delivered via CANVAS. Students who would like to participate in this course will need to sign up for a free account CANVAS to participate. We will be using CANVAS (not the School of Economics account).

(G)Japanese Visual Culture / Dylan McGee

This graduate seminar is open to Japanese students at the MA or PhD level who would like to learn about the theories and methods of studying Japanese visual culture. It is a fun class, where we spend most of our time in group work analyzing visual artifacts from the late Edo period to the present. One or two students may be admitted on an auditing basis (not receiving credit), but only on the condition that they attend the discussion meetings regularly and do the readings.

Notice:Students should understand that this is a graduate seminar, and while we will be reading some texts in Japanese, many of the articles and books will be in English. Students comfortable with reading about thirty to forty pages of academic English per week, and participating in group discussion, should be fine taking this course.

 

Physiology and Anatomy 1/ Maria Vassileva

Physiology and Anatomy 1 is an advanced course that focuses on human physiology concepts. The course is suitable for students who already have a basic background in human anatomy and physiology, as it builds on this fundamental knowledge and discusses physiology processes at molecular level. A focus is made to show connections between organ systems and a connection between health and disease.

Modern Japanese Culture and Asia / Nathan Hopson

This seminar explores aspects of modern Japan’s cultural, historical, socioeconomic, and political relations with Asian neighbors. We will begin more or less in the present. After assessing the recent state of affairs, we will jump back a bit more than a century to the Russo-Japanese War period (1904-1905). From there, we will proceed more or less chronologically through some of the major themes that have characterized those relationships. (It’s not as complicated as it sounds…) This is a discussion-based seminar, and thorough preparation is absolutely necessary. It is difficult for native students.

Notice: This is NOT a lecture course

Food For Thought– English Conversation Class in Zoom (履修登録不要)

We would like to welcome all Japanese students at Nagoya University to join the Food for Thought discussion sessions. Food for Thought discussion session is a weekly meeting among Japanese and international students based around a different topic each week. Topics of conversation range from food culture to climate change to around the world travel. The aim of this course is to give Japanese students a chance to improve their English conversation skills in an academic setting. We will practice the skills of argumentation and debate and how to express your own opinion in an effective manner. If you are the kind of person who thinks: “I wish I had more chances to meet international students and practice English in real life instead of just reading this old textbook!”, then this is the chance for you to get some conversation practice! There is no minimum limit of English knowledge required, you can just join in and listen if you want to. Our plan is to bring together students from different majors and backgrounds and to increase interaction between Japanese students and international students. We want to offer students a chance to get to know new people and widen their understanding of the world by looking at complex topics from different points of view. As this is an informal gathering we also encourage you to relax and maybe have a snack while participating.

The Food for Thought discussion sessions are held in Zoom every week on Tuesdays at 18:00-19:00:

Zoom へのアクセス情報:https://nuss.nagoya-u.ac.jp/s/csNnHcWwcM6ic5k
