Since 2020, the University of Tsukuba has shifted to an educational system centering on degree programs, allowing teachers and faculty members from across a broad range of academic fields to undertake educational programs in collaboration with each other beyond the boundaries of conventional organizations. In the modern world of complex problems, education research develops through intersecting traditional frameworks, changes rapidly, and by so doing, is expected to accurately respond to the need for human-resources development for greater sophistication and diversity.
The Art and Design Degree Programs aim to foster highly skilled professionals and researchers who engage in exclusive studies from a broad perspective on the theory and practice of figurative arts, and are capable of responding to a variety of developments in current figurative arts with an extensive skillset including practical applicability/plannability, while playing a leading role in society (Master’s Programs). In addition, the programs aim to foster researchers with creative research ability in figurative arts and outstanding professional knowledge and practical skills with which they can contribute to various fields within society, and university faculty members who have forged firm teaching and research skills (Doctoral Programs).
Through the programs, students are expected to deepen their expertise and skills in art and design, to find themes independently based on a broad range of knowledge, to acquire the ability to develop research in a creative and unique manner, and to establish an appropriate method of achieving research results that contribute to the progress of the division.
