Features of the School of Humanities

The fields of knowledge exploring human activities are expanding without limit

The “School of Humanities” of Kanazawa University aims to learn ─ and train students to learn ─ about human behavior, thought, and creativity through studies of various kinds of idea, history, culture, and language. The objects of its study and education are diverse, from psychology to field study of cultures, human science, history, linguistics, and literature.

Courses, majors, and sub-majors … A flexible curriculum offering a wide range of options

To cultivate generalists who have a comprehensive and interdisciplinary perspective, we offer five courses and fifteen majors. Although you will decide your course and major when you advance to your sophomore year, to broaden your options, we have introduced a sub-major system, for example, so that you may receive an education that matches your intellectual aspirations and life plan.
