Aiming to foster the skills to address various problems related to humans, such as human behaviors, social phenomena, languages and history, by taking a creative and flexible approach, the Division of Humanities has two programs, including the specialty deepening program, which conducts studies mainly on a specific specialized domain, and the interdisciplinary comprehensive program, which conducts studies mainly on a composite domain.
