The present paper aims to explain why authoritarian attitudes are increasing among younger Japanese in light of increased enrollment rates in tertiary education in specific disciplines. Research shows that younger and college educated people are adopting greater authoritarian attitudes. However, it has not been clear who is acquiring these authoritarian attitudes among college-educated people. In comparing the data of SSM1995 and SSP2015, it was observed that the rise in authoritarian tendencies in younger Japanese was affected by men with higher education. To investigate people with higher education in detail, we examined the interaction between tertiary education enrollment rates and registration by major using Structural Equation Modeling with SSP2015 data. The result showed that the higher the enrollment rate in tertiary education is, the stronger the authoritarian attitudes among men who majored in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). The relationship between enrollment rates and authoritarian attitudes is assumed to be due to the influx of relatively authoritarian students to tertiary education and interaction between the students. The aforementioned results suggest that authoritarian tendencies in younger Japanese were driven by male college graduates who majored in SSH. Furthermore the authoritarian attitude among them intensifies with the rise in the rate of enrollment in tertiary education, possibly reflecting reinforcement from peers.
