Faculty information

Overview of the School

The School of Social Sciences at Waseda University was established in 1966 as a new endeavor that would allow students to study the social sciences in a comprehensive and interdisciplinary manner. In order to take advantage of this interdisciplinary tradition, and to contribute to growth of the school in the future, we have prepared an unparalleled program that is both comprehensive and specialized. By fostering the ability to accurately grasp and analyze complex societal problems and formulate solutions for them, we seek to nurture large-scale thinkers who can independently construct big-picture schemes for the benefit of society.

Contemporary Japanese Studies Program (English Language Program)
