Graduate School

Our educational principles and our history of over 60 years have produced a succession of promising scholars and professionals.

The Graduate School of Meiji Gakuin University has its foundation in Christian-based education and in the freedom of scholarly learning. We engage in research and teaching of profound scholarship, both in theory and in application. Our further purpose is to foster the ability to provide research guidance, to develop professional capabilities in advanced specializations, and to cultivate deep scholarly attainments and outstanding competence. In this way, we seek to contribute to the greater advancement of human culture and welfare.
The purpose of our master’s degree program (first-stage doctoral degree program) is to impart deep and detailed knowledge on the basis of breadth of vision, and to develop the high-level competence required in professions that demand the ability to conduct research in specialized fields or that call for a high level of professionalism.
The purpose of the doctoral program is to develop the ability to conduct high-level research, the ability to apply research, and the abundance of knowledge that serves as a foundation for those abilities. Those are the abilities required in order to engage in independent research activity as a scholar in the major field of study or to engage pragmatically in high-level professional work at institutions of various kinds.
