Graduate School of Cultural and Creative Studies

Academic Principles & Scheme

At the Graduate School of Cultural and Creative Studies, students are taught cultural policy, which is a new field of study, and are nurtured to become professionals in this field. Furthermore, the curriculum of the Graduate School of Cultural and Creative Studies is developed so that students can learn the meaning and role of culture in modern society. We do not confine ourselves to a single discipline, but target a broader area of research. Students will be able to master the ability to distribute culture and art to the world.

Department of Cultural and Creative Management

Academic Excellence

The Department of Cultural Creative Management nurtures students so that they are able to acquire knowledge in media culture, urban/international culture, art management, and other fields while making use of professional skills in areas such as media, cultural institutions, cultural industries, international organizations, PR activities, planning, and marketing in companies. In addition to lectures, students can participate in the Aoyama Community Laboratory (ACL), a project-based research education program run by the Department. This exchange between the University and worksites enables students to learn new ideas and study cultural policy.
Furthermore, in order to acquire practical knowledge from fieldwork, students can earn qualifications as social researchers or certified social researchers.
