Graduate School

Currently, Musashi does not confer undergraduate degrees or graduate degrees in English.  Courses in the three faculties and two graduate schools are predominately offered in Japanese.   International students with a high level of Japanese proficiency may be eligible to take courses.

Faculty of Humanities

The goal of the Faculty of Humanities is to cultivate individuals who have a broad understanding of a diverse array of cultures and values; are able to articulate their ideas and explain their own culture in a foreign language; and can interact effectively with people from different cultures. To achieve this goal, we have developed a systematic study program for a variety of languages as well as enhanced Musashi University’s Overseas Study Program.

Graduate School of Economics

Major in Economics, Management and Finance
Degrees
Master’s Program (Economics) / Doctoral Program (Economics)
The Graduate School of Economics has produced numerous economics, management and finance Master’s and Doctoral graduates who are leading successful careers as researchers at universities and research institutes. On the other hand, there is a growing demand in the corporate sector for individuals with a high degree of specialized training to cope with increasing economic sophistication and globalization. To meet this demand, the Economics Department has established two Master’s courses: (1) the Researcher Course for students who intend to enter the doctoral program and become researchers; and (2) the Advanced Professional Course for individuals interested in gaining the highly specialized knowledge required for success in the business world. Each graduate student is assigned one research supervisor and one assistant supervisor from the full-time faculty, who provide academic and thesis-related guidance. These advisors offer finely tuned guidance tailored to each individual in order to enable students to conduct in-depth research on their chosen field of study.

Degrees
European and American Studies Major Master’s Program (Humanities) / Doctoral Program (Humanities)
Japanese Studies Major Master’s Program (Humanities) / Doctoral Program (Humanities)
Sociology Major Master’s Program (Sociology) / Doctoral Program (Sociology)
The Faculty of Humanities offers three majors in European and American Studies, Japanese Studies and Sociology. Two courses have been established for each major: (1) the Researcher Course is offered to students who seek to enter the doctoral program and become researchers; and (2) the Career Advancement & Lifelong Learning Course is available mainly to those who are interested in pursuing nonacademic careers. As a rule, graduate students enrolled in the Master’s Researcher Course are assigned a faculty member who serves as their research supervisor along with overseeing their master’s theses.
Graduate students in the Career Advancement & Lifelong Learning Course are encouraged to study a breadth of subjects and then choose a specific research topic under the direction of a supervising professor that will form the basis of a research paper or survey report written in lieu of a master’s thesis. The Doctoral Program is also centered on the above three major subjects. On the basis of broad-ranging expertise gained during the master’s program, doctoral students conduct research on more specialized topics and write a doctoral thesis under the finely tuned direction of research supervisors.
