Doctoral Degree Program
The Faculty

As the human race reaches new heights of material prosperity, it is more critical than ever to examine our fate as human beings, and confront the challenges that face our planet today. The world is urgently in need of dynamic, global-minded individuals who can contribute to and promote stability in the world.
This faculty is designed to educate researchers, university teachers, and world leaders in various fields such as culture, politics, economics, education, science, and industry.

Special Features of the Faculty

  1. 1.Education and Research Through an International and Interdisciplinary Approach
    The faculty focuses on the global condition of humans and encourages thinking beyond borders and nations. Through a wide variety of perspectives, students are challenged to research issues of culture, politics, economics, society, and nature, while considering how these forces are interrelated on a global level.
  2. 2.Daytime and Evening Lectures
    Daytime and evening lectures are offered to accommodate regular students, as well as mature students who wish to pursue graduate studies on a part-time basis.
  3. 3.Admissions for International Students
    The number of international exchanges in education is expected to rise as the world becomes more globalized. The faculty welcomes international students and aims to contribute to the international academic community in education and research.
  4. 4.Intensive Tutorial
    The faculty provides students with intensive tutorial-style training, under the head supervisor and assistant supervisor. Students are offered graduate programs leading to either a “Doctor of Arts” or “Doctor of International Studies.”

Program Overview

Due to the rigorous interdisciplinary nature of International Studies, and the limitations of existing academic fields, the faculty offers two comprehensive research disciplines. “Research in International Society” focuses primarily on issues the international community faces as a collective. “Area Studies” allows students to perform specialized research pertaining to specific regions and personal areas of interest.
