Overview

literature

Founder Dr. Enryo Inoue established the "Private School Tetsugakukan" in 1887. The Toyo University Faculty of Literature is proud of its more than 120-year history. This department studies the essence of man and society, regardless of time or national boundary, based on the philosophical ideal passed down through our university, namely "The basis of all learning lies in philosophy."

Currently, the Faculty of Letters has eight departments. Our goal is to provide detailed education through various seminars with small groups of students. We focus on the development of three abilities; "Reading," "Writing" and "Thinking," which are important for better living as humans, in order to develop human resources who can be future pioneers with advanced specialization, profound thinking ability, and a wide range of cultural accomplishments, thus cultivating a broader viewpoint.
