    Graduate School of Global Humanities and Social Sciences

    The Graduate School of Global Humanities and Social Sciences (GSGHSS) seeks to enable students to thoroughly master the global humanities and social sciences as fields of study by making connections between, integrating, and building upon “academic elements” and “academic practice” (transitioning from theory to application and organically connecting the two). Through mastering the global humanities and social sciences, students gain insight on diverse cultures, societies, philosophies, and interests and draw cross-disciplinary linkages between various kinds of knowledge and people, based on an understanding of and sensitivity towards people of diverse cultural backgrounds. The GSGHSS aims to foster professionals who can identify, explain, predict, and find solutions to global humanity and social science issues in the 21st century from an interdisciplinary and panoramic perspective.
