This paper reports on the academic skills of both Japanese and international students who study at universities in Japan. It aims to clarify the difficulties of academic skills through an analysis of resumes and to consider methods of education and support for the acquisition of these skills. First, resumes prepared for seminar presentations by undergraduate students with majors in the School of Humanities were analyzed. The results revealed that 1) setting research theme, 2) the logical composition of research, 3) citation methods, and 4) Japanese language usage in academic settings are common problems and difficulties for both Japanese and international students. However, the nature of the problems was different for 3) and 4). The results also suggest the possibility of providing effective instruction in academic skills by using resumes.
