Graduate Schools Educational Policy/ Outline

We are an education and research institution that seeks to pursue and attain higher level expert knowledge. We continue to conduct education and research based on internationalism and pragmatism, which are the basic principles of the school that students also learn through their studies in the Undergraduate Faculties. Another feature of this Graduate School is its globally diverse environment with one of the largest populations of international students among private universities in Japan. These qualities and traits are what build the foundation of Takushoku University.
