World Culture Seminar

The World Culture Seminar (WCS) is a twice-annual 10 week seminar run by the Ibaraki International Association. The seminar is held twice a week at the Ibaraki International Association in Mito, on selected Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. Each session runs for two hours and includes a presentation in English by a guest speaker from a foreign country and group activities such as discussions and games.
