Faculty of Letters

The Faculty of Letters is devoted to accumulating the wisdom of mankind in the area of cultural and social matters, and carrying out in-depth researches and thorough education in the specialized areas of language, literature, history, and cultural assets as well as striving to develop new fields of research and education as an intellectual base to respond to the various issues brought up by modern and regional society. Furthermore, we also cultivate useful human resources that can respond to regional culture and issues, and contribute to the international society by providing students with a wide range of knowledge, rich humanity, high-level expertise, and a comprehensive perspective through ongoing research and education.
