Our history at Bunkyo Gakuin University traces back to 1924, when our founder, Shimada Ishiko, established Hongo Women’s Academy with the aim of “providing women with the skills to become independent.” Upholding that core philosophy, the institution has since evolved with the changing times by expanding its scope from women to “people” and shaping its present-day focus around the concepts of independence and coexistence. That foundation now forms the basis of our educational activities, sustaining the active, inquisitive learning on which we pride ourselves. Our institutional structure has changed several times over the last 95 years, with the opening of Bunkyo Women’s College in 1964, the establishment of the Faculty of Business Administration–the first such faculty at a Japanese women’s university–in 1991, and the renaming of the school to Bunkyo Gakuin University in April 2002. Bunkyo Gakuin University is home to approximately 5,000 students, who study in four faculties and five graduate schools at the Hongo Campus in Tokyo and the Fujimino Campus in nearby Saitama Prefecture. The academic organization comprises the Faculty of Foreign Studies, Faculty of Business Administration, Faculty of Human Studies, and Faculty of Health Science Technology, which provide undergraduate education in a total of ten different departments. The Bunkyo Gakuin University Graduate School, meanwhile, features master’s programs in five fields of study.
