Nurturing talent with the ability investigate and solve increasingly diverse problems
We nurture talent with the ability to investigate and solve complex and diversified problems by having students acquire advanced specialized knowledge and practical skills in the wide variety of academic fields in which they major.
In keeping with the School Philosophy, the Graduate School of Liberal Arts seeks to develop professionals who have amassed a high level of specialized knowledge and practical skills in the wide range of academic fields in which they specialize and who are able to research and solve a wide range of problems.
The Graduate School of Liberal Arts is where students can continue to question the nature of human beings and acquire knowledge. Students can also acquire qualifications centered on a teacher-training.
Many students graduating from the Division of Japanese Cultures find careers at educational institutions and companies. Many students graduating from the Division of Clinical Psychology and Division of Psychology tend to decide on career paths which have them working at welfare facilities and educational institutions. Students decide on their career paths in a manner which allows them to leverage the specialized knowledge learned at the Graduate School of Liberal Arts.
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.
