Message from the Dean

The Graduate School of Liberal Arts has students asking the timeless question of what human beings are. There are four majors at the Graduate School of Liberal Arts, which means that there are four different mountains, so to speak, which students can climb to dive into the question of what human beings are. No matter the major, students should not forget that what they are seeking is ultimately the same.

The academic exploration of human existence in this sense is referred to as the humanities. In fact, when universities were established in Western Europe, the foundation of all scholarship undertaken was found in the humanities. It was thereafter when we saw things get divided up into philosophy, history, literature, and so on. The root was a unified field of humanities.

Academics are, of course, currently divided into various fields, and there are many specialized academic fields found at our university. There are four majors which have been developed at the Graduate School of Liberal Arts itself, which is where students undertake the study of the humanities. Within the foundations of those majors can be found the theme of human pursuits. Thus, we would like to see students at the Graduate School of Liberal Arts studying with both a sense of pride and sense of mission when it comes to handling the timeless question of what human beings are.
