History
Foundation
Nagoya University of Foreign Studies (NUFS) was founded in 1988 and has been growing steadily since its establishment. Starting with only the School of Foreign Languages, NUFS doubled its offerings by establishing the School of Global Business and Economics in 1994. The opening of the Department of Japanese Studies in 1999 augmented those provided from the very beginning: the Department of British and American Studies, the Department of French Studies and the Department of Chinese Studies. NUFS established the Graduate School of International Studies in 1997 and its Doctoral Program (second semester) in 1999. The Japanese Language Institute of Nagoya University of Foreign Studies was also founded in 2001, focusing on academic exchanges with many overseas universities. NUFS continues on the path of innovation and development. To meet the growing needs for English Language teaching, NUFS established the Department of English Language Teaching in the School of Foreign Languages in 2008. In 2013, the Department of Liberal Arts and Global Studies was founded in the School of Contemporary International Studies for those who wish to seek careers on a global scale.
