MA Course in Liberal ArtsMA Course in Liberal Arts - Features of the Curriculum

The Graduate School of Liberal Arts consists of three disciplines; "human and activity", "human and communication" and "human and self-expression". We seek to prepare our students to lead successful and productive lives in the complex modern world. In our school, students are able to study various branches such as philosophy, logic, history, representation, environment, religion and information; as well as interdisciplinary fields under a supervision of the faculty from various research disciplines. The aim of our school is to encourage high level of critical thinking, cultivate academic research, and support students to become competent experts in wide spread areas.

Specifically, our educational program starts with a core curriculum of "Introduction of Liberal Arts" coursework, where students learn basic academic skills. Following the completion of the core curriculum, students move on to study any of the three disciplines. "Human and self-expression" is devoted to study and historical analysis of literature, theory, and philosophy. "Human and activity" studies the environment and human activities. "Human and communication" is devoted to provide foundations for the scholarship of contemporary cultural problems using logic, as well as media and information studies. Students are encouraged to work across these disciplines to support students' academic interests to the maximum extent.

Our study program consists of lectures and seminars combined with a program of applied liberal arts which aims to familiarize students with current trends in their fields of study and provide them with tangible, everyday encounters of arts and sciences. This curriculum intends to contribute to student's knowledge and ideas inside and outside of the campus to deepen their academic experiences.

Our academic community, including faculty and students, presents the results obtained from our research program through participation in conferences and publications. Our Master's degree students finish their course program with the writing of Master Thesis. Our program gives an opportunity to students to work on their thesis with number of faculty supervises. We insist that students' thesis' research reflects their own academic interests.
