Academic Program

In the first two years, students are expected to take fundamental and broad courses in each field finding connections between subjects. In the third year, each student is offered more specialized courses according to his/her interest and ability, and subjects which are organically related to each other by the curriculum of specialized subjects. They set the theme and direction towards the graduation project. Moreover, off campus practice is offered in order to enhance real life experience. The fourth year is devoted to a graduation project which consists of a thesis and work.

After Graduate

Graduates have played active roles as art and design specialists who meet a wide range of social needs: designers, planners, illustrators, artists, audio-visual media artists, teachers, curators in museums, researchers and public officials.

The flexible program is also prepared for further education(Master’s Programs and Doctoral Programs in the Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Science, or other University’s Graduate Schools) to become specialists, educator, and researcher in higher level.
