Department of Shin Buddhist Studies

Students enrolled in this department share the questions asked by Shinran, which will lead them to look deeply into themselves and gain the knowledge to create a more humane society.

“What does it mean to be a human being?” “How should individual human beings live their lives?” Shinran devoted his life to seeking the answers to asking such fundamental questions and sharing his understanding with others. In the Department of Shin Buddhist Studies, students learn about Shinran’s thought, reflect deeply into the meaning of their own existence and acquire the strength to live in modern society. What is truly important for people? How should we live while interacting with others? These are the issues that are addressed in this field of study.
