Gain a global perspective and tackle local problem-solving

In addition to acquiring expertise, specialized skills and techniques in various sciences such as humanities, anthropology, society, regional studies and information, students gain an accurate understanding of regional issues and various issues of globalized modern society through combined specialized fields of learning. We aim to foster practical people who are able to solve problems and contribute to improving the welfare and culture of mankind.

 

The faculty of Integrated Arts and Sciences went through reorganization and started as Department of Integrated Arts and Social Sciences from April 2016. Now the new department has four courses in the department: International Comparative Studies in Society and Culture, Health Sciences of Mind and Body, Public Policy Studies and Community and Regional Studies.  Globalization presents various issues for modern society, and there is a pressing requirement for social initiatives to solve them. Department of Integrated Arts and Social Sciences under-takes diverse scholarship and interdisciplinary education and research relevant to solving these issues. It aims to develop personnel with a broad perspective and knowledge, with the analytic, communication,management and coordination skills to solve these issues, who can contribute to creating regional culture and lifestyles.
