About the Graduate School of Humanities
Provide Practical Education and Develop People Who Can Contribute to the Development of Society and Culture
Aiming for New Humanities by Reexamining the “Study”
Based on the fundamental question of “What makes a human being?”, we examine the traditions of “study,” and are working to build a fundamentally fresh academic discipline that will pioneer the next era.
Independence and Integration of Each Department
In addition to pursuing the uniqueness of each discipline of Philosophy, History, Japanese Literature, English and American Literature, German Literature, French Literature, and Journalism, we have established the Program in- Cultural Interaction to promote interdisciplinary research.
Developing a Diverse Researchers through In-depth Personalized Instruction
By providing a worldy education with a curriculum that subdivides specialties and individualized guidance that emphasizes the unique character of graduate students of various nationalities, we nurture people who can apply their expertise in various fields such as research, education, and media.

To this end, hands-on education programs are held with a focus on holistic study on culture, connection to modern society, and linguistic abilities to develop human resources capable of contributing to social and cultural development.
Master’s programs are aimed for fostering scholars, providing them with advanced knowledge and expertise to enhance their professional capacity.
