In the Department of Art Education, students pursue highly diversified studies into the educational significance of art and the aesthetic formation of human character, engaging in both creative activity to mobilize their practical skills and research rooted in theoretical thinking.
In practical creative endeavors, students expand their horizons in an expansive range of artistic areas, striving to heighten the caliber of their specialized skills as purveyors of expression. They likewise inquire the essential significance of art in the formation of human thought, development and other aspects at the source of expression. They devote themselves to studies designed to theoretically deepen the discovery and the experience gained from their own works.
On the creative side, the Department maintains a broad view that extends to interdisciplinary links with other fields. On the theoretical research front as well, in addition to theories of creation and education, collaborations are actively engineered with artistic anatomy, graphic or color science and other fields involving the fundamentals of art, as well as with other disciplines linked to the basics of human life. This is all part of the Department ’s integrated quest to lay the groundwork for higher quality of art education for many years to come.

Interview with a Master’s Degree Graduate of 2022 Akane Hosaka
I went through a period of uncertainty about whether to continue my artistic pursuits, but now I am determined to keep creating. I believe the art education department has three advantages. Firstly, it provides an opportunity to build friendships where diverse concerns can be shared. Secondly, it allows for a broader perspective and self-reflection on one’s own specialization. Lastly, it offers deeper understanding of your field of arts through the process of writing research papers. I encourage you to engage with a wide range of people and discover the art you wish to communicate.
