Graduate School of Human-Environment Studies Faculty of Human-Environment Studies Kyushu University

Curriculum

The fundamental vision of the educational program of the Graduate School of Human-Environment Studies in the Master’s, Ph.D., and Professional Graduate School programs is as follows:

The Master’s Program

In order to create and develop the Human-Environment Studies discipline, which is the second aim of our educational program, we have implemented two measures. Firstly, a core curriculum, “Human-Environment Studies”, was set up as a semi-mandatory subject, allowing all students in every department to participate. Secondly, students are offered to take up other subjects from different courses. As a result, students are now able to master interdisciplinary knowledge and skills. That is to say, students who wish to concentrate on a single academic area are able to choose subjects offered in their course, while students who wish to learn various disciplines and gain interdisciplinary knowledge are able to choose various subjects from different courses.

Professional Graduate School of Applied Clinical Psychology

A characteristic of the Professional Graduate School is that we offer more opportunities for students to experience clinical practice; practical application is the focus of the curriculum. The Faculty members of practitioners are in charge of specialties in clinical areas (such as education, welfare, and medical health) so that students are able to acquire a wide range of clinical practical skills. In addition, dissertations are case-based in order to improve students’ clinical practice skills.

The Ph.D. Program

The Ph.D. program offers the opportunity to master advanced professional knowledge as well as cultivate skills to expand conventional research methodologies. An instruction system to nurture advanced researchers who will engage in education and research in higher education institutions is also provided.

Doctoral Degree Program
Doctorate by means of Doctoral Course

Candidates are required to complete the doctoral course. Each course has specific standards of requirements for submission. Each course may permit special case of fast-tracked doctoral degree for outstanding students. Submission and final judgment of dissertation are completed in 3 years after the completion of doctoral course.

The following research career is required for candidates

  1. 1. Four years of research career after the completion of master course.
  2. 2. Seven years of research career after the graduation of university or college.
  3. 3. Ten years of research career without academic background 1 or 2.

*”Research career” indicates career with teaching or research status in universities, colleges or other authorized research institutions.

Each course has specific standards of requirements for submission.
