The aim of this Graduate School is to train students to become pioneering researchers and practitioners mastering the discipline of area studies, equipped with a deep understanding of Asian and African areas and a global and holistic perspective.

     With the view that exchanges of ideas among students from diverse backgrounds increase the effectiveness of education, we welcome applicants with a strong intellectual curiosity in Asian and African areas, including those who have worked and/or experienced volunteer activities in these regions.

     In considering applications from foreign students, we adopt a view toward increasing our contributions to the global community, as well as toward strengthening academic exchange with Asian and African areas.
