Flexible learning matched to future goals
The most distinctive feature of Sapporo University’s major curriculum is the fusion of nine majors into one academic cluster(School of Society and Collaboration ) .
For students who are interested in a variety of fields and have difficulty in selecting a major (other universities call it a department), the best choice is to enroll in the “School of Society and Collaboration” by using the ” academic cluster admission” system.
Students can take a variety of classes in the nine majors, experience a wide variety of learning, and learn about the world around them. In the second year, students can decide on their major after spending one year thinking about future and interests.

Selecting a major in your second year
Sapporo University has its own system called ” Selecting a major in your second year”, which allows students to focus on their studies during the first year and select their major in the second year.
