Voice of Graduate

Ms. KISHI, Ikumi

I studied at ICU for six years in the CLA and Graduate School, and currently work for a private company. As an undergraduate, I majored in education and minored in sociology. I wrote my senior thesis on the image of fathers in TV anime programs. Majoring in education for my master's, I furthered research into this topic. For my thesis, I looked at how fathers were depicted in TV anime and how that affected children. I currently work for a company that imports and sells products for childrearing and pets.
I was always interested in the image of fathers and their involvement in child rearing, not just from an academic perspective, but in ordinary life. I asked myself questions like: Where does the general image of fathers come from? What defines a good father? I was able to translate these questions into academic interests because of the liberal arts environment at ICU. We have the opportunity to delve into subjects other than our major by taking different courses and having intense discussions with any professor on campus. This environment enabled me to include perspectives from psychology and sociology in approaching the topic of my master's thesis.
Incorporating various disciplines in my studies also helped me shape my plans for the future after graduation. In observing how fathers were perceived in ordinary life, I became interested in finding ways to support them share childrearing tasks. This led to a job at a company looking for would-be employees seeking to introduce more fun for fathers raising their children. The liberal arts education helped me reach my goal.
