Graduate School of Humanities
The curriculum designed to comprehensively study human beings and activities to take up a challenge in an interdisciplinary study and solving issues of modern global society.
The Graduate School of Humanities has carried on the traditions and academic legacy of the fomer Graduate School of Tokyo Metropolitan University (Toritsu Daigaku) for a half century, has established new programs in fields of language sciences, representational culture studies, and Japanese language pedagogy, and has established a master's level clinical psychology program that is separate from the psychology program. In this way, meeting the needs of the times, it covers an extremely wide range of academic disciplines related to humanity, culture, and society and provides a full range of educational and research activities. The graduate school is comprised of four departments:
- Behavioral Social Sciences
- Human Sciences
- Philosophy, History, and Cultural Studies
- Intercultural Studies
However, the units into which students are recruited are broken down into more specialized "programs" or "classes". The students who are admitted can conduct specialized research as they always have. In the master's program, admission is offered in September and February, with entrance exams offered twice a year (only once a year in February in the doctoral program).
