K: Comprehensive Aesthetics/Photo Business Course


In order to instill the aesthetic sense and sensibility that is embodied in traditional Japanese Cultural practices, K-course students will be immersed in classes titled 'Introduction to tea ceremony', 'Tea ceremony practice', 'Kimono aesthetics', and 'Ceremonial culture theory'. From enlightened appreciation of colorful Kimono designs and fabrics set to a backdrop of tatami and paper shoji, to honing and refining their tea-making and serving skills in 'chado, this course aims to cultivate an heightened awareness in aesthetic originality and beauty. Beginning in 2018, an additional 'photography skills' component has been added, which serves to capture those sublime moments with images of permanence through teachings of photo-shooting and digital processing, leading to a flourishing career in photography. This major also encourages students to take meaningful subjects from other courses, including 'wine theory', home cooking' or 'aroma therapy', complimenting their studies in traditional Japanese Fine Arts with a broader liberal arts education.



A: Business Career Course


Due to the declining population of Japan, changes in the social structure and the workplace continues to evolve. As a national policy, in order for companies to maintain and improve production efficiency, systems and mechanisms are rapidly developing that allow women to pursue careers alongside raising families. Respecting the motto of a 'work-life' balance, national goals have been set in order to raise the proportion of female managers to over 30% by the year 2018. In response to the corporate and national trend of hiring well-educated female graduates, our Business Career students will receive a comprehensive education in Administration, English Communication, Information Technology (IT), and Society and Culture. By providing a platform where students will acquire knowledge and skills that are critical for administrative and corporate professionals, our graduates will possess the self-determination to qualify for positions as professional or private clerks, administrative assistants, receptionists, medical office employees, and other valued roles within the professional workplace.



G: Global Tourism Course


Established in April of 2017, the 'Global Tourism' course is based on a liberal arts education with an emphasis on international awareness and globalization. We aim to cultivate graduates with the ambition of embarking on a career in international tourism or business. Classes pertaining to the travel business, hotel administration and management, airline and cruise ship industry, etc... will be conducted in parlance with an immersion in English Language and Communication classes, preparing our graduates to possess the skills which are essential in an increasingly globalized work environment. NFCC has developed a curriculum that also emphasizes awareness of international current events, as well as the development of cultural sensitivity that plays such an important role in the nuances of the international workplace.

Under the assistance and guidance of faculty, students are also encouraged to enroll in various 'study abroad' programs on offer in North America and Europe. Whether taking part in English Language programs or 'real-work' internships, these opportunities aim to provide practical educational experiences that will prove invaluable for their respective careers. Additionally, G-course faculty and administrators will aim to facilitate employment opportunities for our graduates, in a variety of positions including travel agency staff, tour planner, hotel staff, cabin attendant, airport staff, cruise company staff, theme park staff, and so on.

V: Voice Actor / Talent Course


Voice actors play a vital role across many mediums, including pitching products in advertising, helping animated characters come to life in movies and television shows, as well as broadcasting and narration. Since voice work demands a high degree of vocal versatility and attention to detail, this course introduces the basics of speaking, including utterance, pronunciation, pitch and accent. Professional voice actors and instructors implement practical training methods, including reading drills which focus on distinct pronunciation and rhythm. Classes often consist of reading familiar scripts from plays, musicals, animation and 'rakugo', creating a stimulating and enjoyable learning environment. The work of voice actors, narrators and broadcasters is not just reading the manuscript in front of them, but it also requires an understanding on how to interpret the given information, think about how to express it, and the impact it will make for their audience.

V-Course students will also compliment their major studies with a comprehensive Liberal arts education, including information technology (PC), Presentation and English Communication skills which will serve them well in their careers. Cultivating knowledgeable and socially-conscience V-Course graduates, who have the training and courage to realize their dream is our top priority at NFCC.
