Rebirth: Graduate Course in the Arts
The graduate course in the arts at this art university has a history of more than 60 years, and starting in 2019, the first year of Ekoda year-round operations, the 4 years of undergraduate studies, 2 years that make up the Master's Program, and 3 years that make up the Doctoral Program will all be gathered at a single campus, making an integrated 9-year education possible. The 5 fields of study that can be selected for the Master's Program are highly-specialized, cultivating imagination and international communication through in-depth research of art theory and history in combination with applications going beyond these fields. Through the creation of composite artworks and research pursuits, students develop advanced knowledge and experience in these programs. The Literary Arts program was started in 1951, and 4 additional programs were added on in 1993: Image Arts, Fine Art and Design, Musical Arts, and Performing Arts. Through the years, these programs have turned out large numbers of researchers and artists. The doctoral program in The Arts was started in 1995, and there have been a total of 117 graduates earning PhD degrees since then who are now carrying out independent research and expression in a wide range of fields and contributing to society. Our goal is to train people who will be pioneering trailblazers for the future of the arts.
