The Graduate School - Doctoral Degree Course

Graduate School of Humanities and Sciences

Modern society has experienced globalization, informatization and population aging at a faster rate than ever. The Graduate School of Humanities and Sciences has established a Doctoral program to reexamine today's complex and ever-changing "human phenomena" with a focus on various aspects of culture that are an outcome of human behavior and knowledge, and various problems that people confront in their relationships with society. The course is also designed to seek clues for solving such issues confronting our complicated modern societies and addressing them from a fresh perspective. This course consists of two divisions: the Division of Humanities and Cultures and the Division of Human Sciences. The course is designed to pursue research by organically combining specialized knowledge acquired through Master's degree programs. The Division of Humanities and Cultures considers various aspects of culture which are an outcome of human behavior and knowledge, and the Division of Human Sciences explores various problems that people confront in their relationships with society. A Doctoral degree is awarded to students who earn at least 16 credits, submit a Doctoral Dissertation, successfully complete the dissertation evaluation and pass the final examination. This course is designed to take three years to complete.


Division of Humanities and Cultures

The Division of Humanities and Cultures aims to develop researchers in the area of education who will play a part in the construction of a new understanding of people in the cooperative society of the 21st century. Moreover, the division fosters specialists who are equipped with solid analytical abilities to resolve issues confronting human cultures in the 21st century and advanced knowledge and insight necessary for solving such issues.
