Dean of Graduate School of Letters

We seek highly motivated individuals with an extensive knowledge of history and an eye to the future, and that also possess the creative abilities of logical expression through language and research in order to maintain traditions and the future growth of human studies.

Human Studies is an academic field that pursues human thought and sensitivity through studies of human history, an intelligent knowledge structure and the behavioral patterns cultivated during the course of human progress. Contemplation of human existence and the foundation of all creation, activities to find a future direction by pursuing the past, and attempts to understand human nature by analyzing linguistic expressions and stories, have nurtured researches in philosophy, history and literature, respectively. Human Studies is a collective term of these academic fields. In today's society where the conventional concept of values is changing through the rapid innovation of information technology and globalization, human studies is more important than ever. In order to obtain an appropriate picture of 21st century civilized society in this chaotic world, it is critical to have a keen insight into human nature developed through human studies and other specialized approaches. Nagoya University, Graduate School of Letters is a leader in human studies through the development of unique and energetic research activities and has a passion to foster researchers or professionals who will be able to pass down a rich treasure trove of intellectual activities on human studies to future generations. I hope students like you who are going into this flourishing world of human studies can take full advantage of the programs available at our school in your pursuit of personal possibilities.
