Master's Programmes


As an attractive university with a wide range of fields of study, Nihon University has been involved in not only education and research, but also health care, lifelong education, and numerous other activities contributing to the development of society.

Nihon University has 14 colleges with 86 departments, 22 graduate schools, 11 attached and affiliated high schools, 6 attached and affiliated junior high schools and a kindergarten. Nihon University offers its students a wide variety of courses in specialty fields. Students can also benefit from the size of the school by making use of the intradepartmental credit system to experience a larger range of specialist and liberal arts subjects.

Nihon University offers full support in the difficult times for young students with an ambition to learn to equip themselves with the abilities to pursue their chosen career. I truly hope that we will establish Nihon University as an institute of learning which will always attract many leaders of the future.
