Graduate School of Languages and Linguistics

Graduate School of Foreign Studies has Master's and Doctoral Programs in Linguistics. Linguistics looks both at the universal human phenomenon of language and at the characteristics of particular languages around the world. The school utilizes the university's global network, and aims to create researchers of the language disability or hearing problems who can take the interdisciplinary approach, not only in linguistics, but in other fields such as psychology.
In addition, the Master's Program in Linguistics (TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)) was established in 2006 to offer an extensive program in teaching English to Japanese students at Master's level.
The TESOL Course makes it possible for students to acquire all 30 credits in English. The course offers opportunities not only to Japanese teachers of English, but to non-Japanese teachers teaching both in and out of Japan to acquire theoretical knowledge as well as practical skills in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
