Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

Faculty Outline

Major Program

Students work in an area of specialization (their major program), which they choose based on their own motivation and interests.

The primary and secondary major system

Students develop their overall academic abilities by focusing on two main areas: a primary and secondary major.

  • In the secondary major, students pursue a practical trans-disciplinary program in global and regional human development that helps them to develop their capacity to contribute to society.

The newly established fields of sports science and arts and culture

As a result of the abolition of the Faculty of Education’s lifetime education program and its arts and culture program, we have newly incorporated studies in sports science and in arts and culture within the human culture course, and we have worked to enhance our comprehensive education capabilities.

Two Departments

Department of Human Sciences and Cultural Studies

We are working to address the physical, psychological, and cultural problems of people in regional communities.

We aim to develop a comprehensive understanding based on the various fields of behavioral science, sports science, cultural science, and arts and culture.

Cross-course program

Cannot be selected as the primary major program.

Global and regional human development

Based on the expertise that corresponds to the course with which the individual students are affiliated and taking advantage of the global perspective and practical abilities that our students acquire overseas, we develop their willingness and motivation to contribute toward solving various regional problems, including social, cultural, and environmental issues.
