The tradition of Toritsu-Dai (the former TMU) and the Perspective for the futute.
Continuing the tradition of Japanese linguistics, Japanese language education and sociolinguistics that has been cultivated at the former TMU, a new department has been established.
Our new department also covers contrastive analysis and comparative study of linguistics and cultures, educational technology, coginitive psychology, computer-processing of natural language and the cross-cultural communication for language study and education.
We are developing the new discipline of Japanese language education as a human science. In 2006, the graduate schools were reformed and our department was newly established, which has courses for both M.A. and Ph.D.
All the faculty staff are up-and-coming researchers and accept a variety of research themes.
