日本の上代から現代までの文学作品や作家を研究します。

日本文学コースでは、奈良時代から現代にいたる豊かな日本文学の展開を広く学びます。コースには各時代を専門とする教員がそろっていますので、授業を通して、幅広い知見を得ることができます。それとともに、自分で研究対象とする作品や作家を選び、問題を設定し、課題に取り組む力を身につけてゆきます。問題を自分のものとするために、他人の調査や読みに依存するのではなく、目と手を使って調べ、第一歩を踏み出すことができるよう研究を重ねます。
個々の作品や作家の研究を通して、その時代の文化や人のありかたを探求してゆくことは、普遍的な、人間性とは何なのかを考えるための大切な営みです。
