Explore the source, consider the past, and live in the present and future

The Course of History comprises three divisions: Japanese History, Eastern History, and Western History. We administer an entrance examination for working adults and conduct classes both during the day and in the evening to open the door to working adults, including teachers, curators, and archivists. Our faculty members for Japanese History and Western History specialize in each period of history from the ancient times to the modern era, and for Eastern History, teachers cover Chinese history from the ancient times to the present. To respond to the various needs of historical investigation, and to enable students to transcend their specialization fields and develop powers of inquiry across various periods and regions, classes can also be conducted across divisions. In terms of guidance, we support students in acquiring research methods and other basic skills that will enable them to achieve the level of intellectual independence that is appropriate for high-level professionals and researchers. In specific terms, this means helping students grasp empirical analysis methods for examining sources (historical materials) and supporting them in developing their creativity, which is required to free themselves from the confines of existing theories. Report meetings held throughout the course are one feature of our research activities; we encourage and help students to write Master’s theses, accumulate research accomplishments, and prepare academic manuscripts through these meetings. These research results are published in the Bulletin of the Graduate School, Toyo University, Hakusan Shigaku (Hakusan History), the journal of the Hakusan Historical Society—the only Toyo University organization registered with the Science Council of Japan—and other academic journals. Moreover, by participating in the management of the Hakusan Shigaku journal, students learn about how publications support the work of researchers. By refining their methods of viewing history, studying past events, and discovering the footprints of politics, society, and culture, students can expect to take the first steps in acquiring human wisdom that connects to the present and future.

Overview of the Course

The Course of History comprises three divisions: “Japanese History,” “Eastern History,” and “Western History.” Students can attend classes across these divisions.

The course adopts a day/evening class system so that both new graduates and working adults can join; working adult students need to attempt an examination.

Passion for history does not depend on age or gender. Some of our students are working as they study, and some are undertaking the challenge of real historical study in their retirement years.

The teachers for each course share methods for reading and analyzing materials and texts and provide careful guidance on individual research themes.

We spare no effort in providing the necessary support for students to conduct research based on their original perspectives and theories while referring to the achievements of their predecessors and to produce creative and unique research outcomes.

The course focuses on nurturing serious young researchers.

The Hakusan Historical Society, which seeks to share historical traditions, is registered with the Science Council of Japan. The Society also provides a venue for graduate students to present their research, and through their involvement in the management of the society, students can enhance their personal connections and broaden their perspectives of the historical world. Furthermore, students from our Doctoral course have been selected for the “Young Researcher Development Institute Project” established by the University.

  • Campus: Hakusan
  • Teacher’s license: High school (Geography and History); Junior high school (Social Studies)

専攻長メッセージ

原典を探究し、過去を考え、現在・未来を生きる

「日本史学」「東洋史学」「西洋史学」の3つのコースからなる史学専攻。教員や学芸員、文書館専門職員等の社会人も学ぶことができるように、前期・後期課程ともに社会人入試を実施し、昼夜間開講制を採用しています。日本史・西洋史は古代から近現代までの各時代の専門教員を、東洋史は中国史を中心に古代から近現代までを担当することができる教員を揃え、歴史学の探究を望む様々なニーズに対応、さらに院生各自が専門分野にだけ留まらず、広く時代や地域を越えて考察力を鍛錬すべく、科目を横断的に受講することも可能です。指導に関しては、高度専門職業人や研究者に相応しい知的自立ができるような研究方法・基盤を確立させること、具体的には原典(史料)に沈思する実証的な分析方法を鍛錬し、既存の学説にとらわれない創造性を発現できるように支援しています。研究活動上の特色としては、専攻全体で、研究報告会を実施しており、修論執筆や研究蓄積・学術論文準備などを促進しています。その成果は『大学院紀要』や学内唯一の日本学術会議登録団体である白山史学会の会誌『白山史学』その他の学術誌への論文掲載に反映されており、また白山史学の運営に参画することにより、研究を支える場の状況を理解することもできます。歴史学的思考方法を磨き、過去の出来事を学び、政治・社会・文化の足跡を知ることを通じて、現代・未来に繋がる人類の英知を獲得する糸口となることが期待されます。

概要

史学専攻には「日本史学」「西洋史学」「東洋史学」の3コースがあり、科目の横断的な受講も可能です。

学部卒業生だけでなく、一般の社会人の方も学べるように昼夜開講制を採用し、社会人入試も実施しています。

史学への情熱は、年齢や性別を問いません。本専攻には、仕事を持ちながら学ぶ人もいますし、定年後に本格的な史学にチャレンジしている方もいます。

各コースの教授陣は、資料・原典の読み込み・分析の手法などを伝えるとともに、個々の研究テーマに沿ったていねいな指導を行います。

先人の業績を踏まえたうえで独自の視点と理論で研究を進め、独創的でユニークな研究成果を出せるようサポートを惜しみません。

本専攻は、本格的な若手研究者の養成に力を注いでいます。

史学科の伝統を伝える「白山史学会」は日本学術会議登録団体であり、院生の研究発表の場であるとともに、その組織運営に携わることで、人脈も広がり史学の世界への視野も広くなります。さらに、大学の取り組みとして「若手研究者育成研究所プロジェクト」があり、本専攻の後期課程からも学生が採用されています。
