About Yamagata University

Yamagata University is an institution that boasts a long history and tradition starting with its commencement as the Yamagata Normal School in 1878, and subsequently being founded as part of the new national university system. It is a University that vaunts an impressive scale in Eastern Japan today, maintaining 6 Facilities, 6 Graduate Schools, Yamagata University Hospital, and 4 affiliated schools that include kindergarten, elementary and junior high schools. Furthermore, there are about 9,200 students, with 1,300 non-university level students, and 2,300 faculty members. The University posits "Regional Innovation" "Future Creation" "Multicultural Collaboration" as its mission and will play a crucial role as the driving force in the regional society under a sound university management. In recent years, the social conditions surrounding the University have changed dramatically. The world is contending with population increase; the rapid rise of emerging countries; and the advancement in globalization seen in the areas of information and economy. Japan, on the other hands, is witnessing population decline; the diminished stature of the countryside; and the deflationary economy that is creating turmoil. At Yamagata University, we implement systematic undergraduate curricula based on general education as well as provide practical post-graduate education so that we can produce students who are well-rounded and equipped with the capacity to contribute to society with deep humanity and fundamental academic knowledge.
