Message from the Head of the Program

MATSUGI Takehiko,
Head of the Program

The program of Japanese History is a doctoral-only graduate school. Based on the National Museum of Japanese History (Rekihaku), you can conduct interdisciplinary research under the guidance of professors from a variety of specialized fields, including History, Archaeology, Folklore, Analytical Sciences, and Informatics, using our collection of materials, books, and analytical equipment. You also have the opportunity to work with those from almost all academic disciplines spanning the humanities and sciences. We hope you broaden and deepen your field of specialization and themes while connecting with other courses when necessary to obtain the doctor’s degree.
