Graduate School of Art and Design

In the 20th century, the great progress made in science and technology was often accompanied by redundant specialization and categorization of fields. As a result of this over-specialization, a great number of fields have been created which tend to lose the perspective of the whole. As we observe numerous cases of social and environmental problems in recent years, it becomes obvious that we cannot continue this approach much further. This has led us to providing well-balanced curricula in our graduate programs so students acquire advanced knowledge/techniques as well as training in having creative minds and broad vision. In addition to the courses that deepen the specialties learned at the undergraduate level, we now offer four new courses in interdisciplinary research areas, which benefit students to become artists or researchers with global vision. These new courses are Experimental Art, Tohoku Culture, Information Business and Information Science of Art Objects. Our role in society does not end with education and research within the university. We believe that we have an important role in the regional communities, and participate in various regional activities. If our intellectual expertise is combined with the accumulated know-how of regional companies, we will find excellent opportunities for using innovative technologies to help make the region’s economy prosper.
