History

Mie University was founded on 31 May 1949 with two faculties: Liberal Arts and Agriculture. These gave way to the establishment's present composition of six faculties: Humanities, Medicine, Education, Bioresources, Engineering and Common Education - the latter dealing with cross-faculty courses such as English language teaching. Its Center for International Exchange promotes international links and issues involving the global community.

The institution is Mie prefecture's only national university, [5] located in the city of Tsu in the Kansai region, within easy reach of Kyoto, Osaka and Nagoya. The campus is situated in the north-east of the city, close to the coast of Ise Bay. Though some students make use of nearby accommodation, larger numbers commute from the larger cities, as well as nearby towns such as Ise, Matsusaka and Toba.

In 2017, Mie University established the world's first research centre about the ninja. A graduate master course opened in 2018. It is located in Iga (now Mie Prefecture). [6] The first graduate of the ninja studies master course was Genichi Mitsuhashi (45 years old) in 2020. [6]
