Doctoral Course


You have the opportunity to study and research in a wonderful place, surrounded by nature, that is the greatness of Hokudai. An attractive point of the Faculty of Letters is the existence of a study room for graduate students, where you can meet, collaborate and discuss your research with other students who are not only from Japan, but also from other different countries. If you’re interested in Romance languages, you can learn translation from Professor Fujita.

Master’s Course



Thanks to the Tutor System, I was able to write my research proposal as well as receive advice on how to write reports in Japanese. It really helped! The teachers in the Philosophy and Ethics department study a wide variety of interesting topics and there are plenty of academic presentations and research groups to participate in.

I have spent half a year as a research student and plan to continue into the Master’s course next year.

Master’s Course



When I was an undergraduate student, I came to Sapporo as an exchange student and met Professor Kanazawa who studies ancient Japanese literature. I’ve became greatly interested in Japanese classical literature, and enrolled in the Graduate School of Letters. Since many foreign students study here, it’s easy to build a network of other students. What’s more, Sapporo is an excellent city where urban function and the nature are well-balanced making it easy to study.
