Graduate Course

Outline

Keio Universityfs Graduate School of Letters offers the Japanese History Program. This program regards history as the accumulation of individual human acts, the study of which provides knowledge of a person and the society in which they live. We are always seeking more knowledge, taking into consideration the target area and time, or rather the results of adjacent science beyond traditional academic disciplines. In this program, our lab provides two types of graduate courses: a lecture and a seminar in paleography. We strive to train professionals who will fulfill in-demand positions after completing the program, including professors, museum curators, archivists, and historical teachers at junior and high schools. Further information about each course in this academic year is shown below.

Detailed Information

  • Lecture of PaleographyiŒΓ•Ά‘Šw“ΑŽκu‹`j

In this course, the lecturer trains students to read handwritten historical materials. The majority of handwritten materials before the early twentieth century used a cursive style. Therefore, even students whose mother tongue is Japanese have to work hard to learn to read these materials.
