Sculpture

With creative actions stemming from a pure and free psyche as the essence of being human, this program aims to cultivate students to a world-class level creativity through the connection between society and fine arts.
In modern fine arts, changes in world values systems have resulted in diverse thoughts and means of expression that are the methodologies behind those fine arts. Things can no longer be accomplished in the fine arts through conventional means. For the sake of responding to this state of affairs, in the sculpture course instruction is conducted based on the specialized field of the instructors.

Ceramic, Glass and Metal Works

In “Study of Techniques (Ceramic, Glass and Metal) I and II, based on myriad expressions of research conducted, diverse opinions are exchanged, and the firm creation of a creative framework is desirable.
Each year 2 review meetings are scheduled, but it would not be desirable for only those to take place; those are nothing more than semiannual announcements of research. Most trial product research is advanced based on one’s own planning, so please try to participate more in real society in various manners.
As a condition for completing the second year, a work and a creation report are needed. In order to ensure the success of your two years in the program, please research in a proactive manner.

Textile

The field of research centered on textiles has a long history and much cultural depth. We do not just content ourselves with merely cultivating acquisition or contemplation of technique; we feel that research that puts both those things into action is necessary. Also, in Japan there exists a diverse dyeing and weaving culture of a kind that is rarely seen in the world, and even now it continues to evolve in myriad directions. Amide this sort of production environments, each specialized field instructor aspires to handle things in a very precise manner, and will cultivate human resources that can take a leading role in textiles not only in Japan but throughout the entire world.

As an environmental design fundamentals base to be acquired in the four years in the undergraduate Program, in keep with the individually decided themes, a high degree of specialized knowledge will be acquired and new design methods will be deeply investigated. Also, the state of environmental design shall be considered through deeper investigations and research. From a point of view that is always flexible, collaboration will be proactively pursued between each field, and we will search for the possibilities of new environmental design, such as contributing to society through industry/government/academic collaboration.

Information

In “Media Arts”, through the deep investigation of the possibilities of broad expression we will improve the quality of work creation, and we will not only focus on socially self-sustaining expression through works; we will review our own creations and compile the actions and thoughts pertaining to expression and planning into theses. Also, in “Information Design”, through industry-academia collaboration projects we will focus our attentions on human social actions, and using living environment and information technology, we will study design theory that facilitates enriched construction, and strive for new information field design that is desirable to society now.

Integrated Design

In this program, each student sets his/her own research theme and project following the consideration of various problems extant in the present day through logical and analytical thinking, aiming at the essential improvement of our society and lives. Towards the realization of their projects, students are encouraged to work beyond traditional design boundaries and acquire the skills of integrated designing in which different knowledge bases unite. Based on design aesthetics, we aim to educate the minds that will lead us to a better society and quality of life.

Art Science

We aim to deeply investigate in a systematic manner the wide-ranging fields of fine arts and culture. We will not only research fine arts theory and history; we will also heavily focus on the actual activities of modern society. In addition to cultivating researchers and critics of various visual arts genres and cultural phenomena, we also aim to cultivate human resources that will be the cultural guiding hands behind the realization of the relationship between fine arts and society through diverse routes.

Scenography Design, Drama, and Dance

Drama and Dance

We aim to produce talented people who are motivated and capable of exploring new means of expression regardless of the conventional sense of values, and return their outcomes to society. Each student works towards developing his/her own creative methodology, both through research on documentation of the production processes of performing art works’, and also consideration of the information which s/he obtains from participating in actual stage production sites and workshops. Our seminar ‘Drama and Dance Research’ offers the opportunity to cultivate diverse perspectives through discussion. Heading towards the achievement of the Master’s Degree research projects and theses, students dig deeply into their own subject by means of individual supervision.

Scenography Design

It is our intention to produce talented individuals who will take up leading roles in the future of Japanese performing arts. Each student develops his/her skill base through research on documentation of production processes of scenography, stage lighting, costume design, and video design, and the consideration of the information that s/he obtains from participating in actual stage production sites and workshops. To complete unique Master’s Degree works and theses, students cultivate their own practice methodologies through discussion with others in our seminar ‘Scenography Design Research’, and build the structure of their design practice and research under individual supervision.
