Faculty of the Arts (Correspondence Education)

The motivation to study art opens the door to our university. Anyone aged 18 and older, who is qualified to enroll in a university, can enter our programs, regardless of their academic history or experience. A cross-section of society, including housewives and office workers, studies in every region of the country. An 18-year-old student hopes to become a professional artist and a 93-year-old student thinks about life. Their reasons for enrollment are different: to learn technique, to become certified, or to do research. Students can learn at their own paces by enrolling in either “text classes,” which can be completed at home, or “schooling classes,” which require them to attend classes at either the university or another location. Our students’ eagerness for learning and the strong bonds between our faculty and alumni together form an active platform for a "Future Built on the Arts."
