Overview

Doshisha University was founded in 1875 by Joseph Hardy Neesima (Jo Niijima), who became one of the six great educators of the Meiji era. The three educational principles of Liberalism, Internationalism, and Christian Principles have been passed on to us since its foundation, and students are encouraged to nurture a sense of freedom, independence, and conscience. Doshisha offers graduate programs in various fields of study, providing many research opportunities. The university has respected graduate schools in Theology, Letters, Social Studies, Law, Economics, Commerce, Policy and Management, Culture and Information Science, Science and Engineering, Life and Medical Sciences, Health and Sports Science, Psychology, Global Studies, and Brain Science. In addition, there are two professional graduate schools in Law and Business. Furthermore, the programs of Graduate School of Global Studies, Doshisha Business School, and International Science and Technology Course (ISTC, a program offered by Graduate School of Science and Engineering + Graduate School of Life and Medical Sciences) are taught entirely in English. Located in the ancient capital of Kyoto, Doshisha University is home for over 2,400 graduate and professional graduate students. Doshisha continues to develop as an international hub of higher education and research.
