Graduate Schools

Cultivating human resources who can contribute to scientific advancement in the world through advanced research and education at the four graduate schools

Graduate School of Human and Socio-Environment Studies

Training personnel to support our increasingly complex society

The Graduate School of Human and Socio-Environment Studies was established by reorganizing and integrating the graduate school of Socio-environmental Science (Doctoral Course), the graduate school of Letters, the graduate school of Law, and the graduate school of Economics (Master’s Course). Our institute, as a graduate school with master’s and doctoral degree programs, is training higher level of professionals in the master’s course and through a continuous education in two programs bringing up higher level of creative teachers and researchers in the doctor’s course. The Master’s degree program has three divisions: the Division of Public Policy and Management, which trains students to become highly capable professionals who can work for municipal governments, enterprises or NPO’s; the Division of Social Systems, which conducts research on the social environment, i.e. the family, community, etc. which surround an individual; the Division of Humanities, where students learn about the environment as it relates to cultural pursuits such as language, ideas, religion and the arts. The Doctoral degree program has four courses: Human and Cultural Environment Studies course, Comparative Social Control Systems Course, Comparative Political and Economic Studies Course and Convivial Society and Environment Studies Course.
