The college aims to enhance students’ ability to capture the true essence of humanities by teaching them to ponder thoroughly on “human culture,” such as linguistics, education, and language arts, through philosophy, history, poetry, literature, and literary criticism.
Students examine aspects of the world and human nature, ranging from literature, music, art, and international conflict to Japanese society and culture, all from the perspective of Christianity. The department approaches Christianity itself as a discipline and examines the ideas, culture, and art that Christianity has impacted and that have impacted Christianity.
Students will not only acquire English-language skills (reading, writing, speaking, and listening) but also become familiar with the cultures and literature of the English-speaking world. They will apply their English skills by discussing what is happening in the world and what we should do about it.
Students will not only become familiar with the German language but also study the literature and culture of the German-speaking region, including Viennese music, works of great poets and authors such as Goethe and Kafka, medieval German cities and architecture, and Nazism and its negative legacy. The department also provides the assistance with those wishing to enter study abroad programs and/or prepare for language proficiency exams.
The French language offers access to a world of great depth and breadth. By studying French and reexamining the world from the perspective of the French language, students have opportunities to study the cultures, literature, and philosophies of the French-speaking world. While doing so, they can delve into the history and literature of different worlds—worlds spanned beyond national boundaries and vibrant with diverse cultures and people.
The course offers lectures and seminars focused on the entire span of Japanese literature, from the ancient to the modern, covering all aspects of the Japanese language. For example, students will study such a variety of topics and materials, such as the prose literature of the Heian period, the realistic literature of the Edo period, modern novels, as well as the terminology and grammar of all ages.
By engaging in seminar-format debates and critiques of the works of their fellow classmates, students will develop the ability to articulate their ideas by their own words. For their senior theses, students may submit original works in the form of a poem, novel, literary critique, cultural critique (on music, theater, art, or an element of subculture), philosophical treatise, or thesis on thought.
This department offers three courses of specialization - Course of World History, Course of Japanese History and Course of Interdisciplinary Cultural Studies - and aims to help students better understand contemporary society and their own positions within it by helping them understand their own historical and cultural backgrounds. Students select and join a particular course starting in their second year.
The study of education is positioned here as an integrated study of humankind in which students perform multifaceted analyses and investigations of human being as constantly developing and changing entity. Instructors from the College of Arts collaborate across departments to teach classes jointly in this department. Students will comprehensively study human development by exploring such topics as household education, school education, social education, international comparative education, and environmental education.
