Graduate Studies

Introduction

Students in the Master's Program and the Doctoral Program in the Department of History study more sophisticated and specialized content. In order to provide the smoothest possible transition from undergraduate studies, we have set up four divisions: Japanese History, Asian History, European and American History, Archaeolohy.

As a rule, full-time faculty members give lectures and practical training courses at the Master's Degree level and advise students on writing their Master's thesis. In addition, faculty members with concurrent appointments also give lectures and practical training courses. We also allow interdisciplinary studies, depending on the individual graduate student's interests.

Students in the Doctoral Program concentrate on writing a doctoral dissertation.

Entrance examinations for both the Master's Program and the Doctoral Program are held twice a year in the fall and the spring. We also hold entrance exams for veterans four-year graduates who want to return to academic work.
