The Bunkyo University was established in 1953. The Bunkyo University Foundation is an academic group with four campuses. At the Hatanodai campus in Tokyo’s Shinagawa Ward, it has the Administrative Foundation Office, the University’s Secretarial Department, and the International Exchange Center. There are also three schools attached to the university - - a kindergarten, a junior high school and a senior high school. Including the number enrolled in the kindergarten, there are about 1,400 students attending these schools.
The Koshigaya campus, located in Koshigaya City, Saitama Prefecture, consists of the Faculty of Education, Faculty of Human Sciences, Faculty of Language and Literature, Graduate School of Human Science (Master’s & Doctoral), Graduate School of Language and Culture (Master’s), Graduate School of Education, Graduate School of Education, Special Postgraduate Course and the Foreign Student Department. About 4,800 students are studying at the Koshigaya campus.
At the Shonan campus in Chigasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, about 3,200 students are studying. The campus comprises the Faculty of Information and Communications, the Faculty of International Studies, the Graduate School of Information and Communication (Master’s), the Graduate School of International Cooperation (Master’s) and the Women’s College.
At the Ishikawadai campus in Tokyo’s Ota Ward, an elementary school where about 220 students are studying is also attached to Bunkyo University.
Teaching staff at the Bunkyo University Foundation have devoted themselves to providing person- to - person education so that the teachers understand the needs of each and every student at the kindergarten, the elementary school, the junior high school, the senior high school, the university and the graduate schools. In light of the rapid internationalization of Japanese society, the junior high school, the senior high school and the university have made academic affiliation contracts with educational institutions in such countries as the United States, Germany, China, Australia, Korea and New Zealand. Under these contracts, the three Bunkyo-affiliated schools and the foreign institutions have promoted student interchanges, including exchange programs in which students from Bunkyo and foreign universities study at each other’s school.
The Bunkyo University Foundation has stepped up efforts to deepen relations between its schools and parents of students, and has striven to offer education in a manner that would increase the satisfaction of all students. Graduates of the Bunkyo University Foundation have been playing major roles in various communities and have received high acclaim for their contributions and achievements in society.
