Five majors that further more in-depth and advanced study
- The five programs for the literature studies in our graduate school include the “Japanese Program,” “Sociological Community Studies Program,” “English Language and British /American Literature Program,” “Comparative Cultures Program” and “Practical Studies of Clinical Education Program.” Students can further their studies in the department in our two year Masters Course and choose their own topic to perform research.
Special resources available for research
- Our graduate school offers special research rooms for graduate students and has individual desks as well. In addition, there are special libraries available for each major, which feature specialized collections of books and magazines for each respective field and also provide an environment for graduate students to help dedicate themselves to their classes and research.
Support system available for financial assistance
- In addition to a tuition waiver system and scholarship program, this university offers a unique and comprehensive support system such as the “Teaching assistant (T.A.) system,” which offers compensation for teaching assistants that have supporting roles for professors, and the “Graduate student scholarship program for studying abroad,” which encourages participation in training programs overseas.
Research assistant system to support collaborative research
- One of the features of our graduate school is the close relationship with professors. This system provides research assistant positions to graduate students who have the specialized knowledge required in research activities and can perform support tasks. As a result, graduate students receive monetary compensation for their work and gives them a chance to make a name for themselves as collaborators.
