Welcome to the Department of English Language & Literature at the Prefectural University of Kumamoto
Our goal at the Department of English Language and Literature is to help our students gain understanding of others and the world around them by using English. By improving our students’ abilities to communicate in English, we help them understand linguistics, literature, and culture, giving them the international perspectives needed to succeed. Our literature courses cover not only important authors, works, and critical theories, but also look into cultures, histories, and social thought. Our English linguistics courses theoretically and systematically analyze the structures and meanings of English. Higher level students can choose classes to delve deeper into their area of study. Courses are also available on teaching Japanese.
Message from the Chair
Welcome to the PUK Eibun website!
Becoming a university student is a big change in your life. So you should spend some time to think about what you want to do. In our department, we help all our students to reach a high level of English proficiency through classes such as Oral Presentation, Integrated Skills, and Extensive Reading & Listening. And we also help you to experience a range of specialist fields and find one that is your passion, in which you can write your graduation paper (“sotsuron”).
After that, you can find work in a wide range of careers where English is used, such as teaching, airlines, and translation.
Please take a look through our site, as well as the main PUK website, and we look forward to seeing you!
