Takushoku University’s graduate school offers the diversity that society requires of specialized education institutions in cutting-edge disciplines that continue to become more sophisticated and complex. We have five graduate schools in which students can conduct systematic and practical research, accept many international students, and provide a research environment with impressive international depth. The key features of the educational curriculum are as follows: (1) an emphasis on practical learning that can meet the demands of society, (2) a sense of internationalism in place since the school’s founding, (3) a flexible curriculum conducive to research across multiple fields, and (4) diverse study patterns that support research by working adults.

Three Basic Policies

1.Admission Policy

Our policy is to identify and accept individuals who have a sense of mission that is well suited to an international university environment, who have distinctive personalities, and who are highly motivated to learn. For this reason, we look for the following types of students, regardless of age or gender, from both inside Japan and abroad:

  1. Individuals who understand and have an appreciation for the university’s founding spirit
  2. Individuals who agree with the cultivation of human resources as expressed in the university’s educational objectives
  3. Individuals who are striving to acquire a high level of specialized knowledge and skills

2.Curriculum Policy

  1. Based on the university’s founding principles, each graduate school creates its own curriculum for equipping students with a wide range of highly specialized knowledge, skills and problem-solving abilities in a systematic and progressive way
  2. The curriculum is designed to enhance the communication skills of students
  3. Class evaluations and evaluations of instructor education and research performance by students—giving consideration not only to the subject being taught and to research papers, but also to various social contributions both on and off campus—function as the two wheels of a single cart. We constantly make curriculum developments designed to foster education and research skills.
  4. For the convenience of students, we operate on a semester system that divides classes into two semesters, and award credits by semester. To make it easier for working people and members of the general public to consider a graduate school education, we also strive to be flexible in our class schedules.

3.Diploma Policy

Students judged to have completed their academic program will be awarded either a master’s or doctoral degree. To earn a degree, they must take classes to acquire a wide range of specialized knowledge, skills and problem-solving abilities, including classes that foster the essential knowledge all Takushoku University students must possess; acquire the prescribed number of academic credits through a rigorous grading and evaluation process; and complete the prescribed written thesis and related exam requirements.
