Field of Study

Our modern society has become diversified. With its diversification, various facets of the society have become more complicated. Since various kinds of factors lie behind the issues we face, it has become essential for us to address these problems using various kinds of knowledge and techniques. In the Faculty of Humanities and Human Sciences, we aim to explore the most complex question, “ What does it mean to be a human being? ”The Department of Human Sciences offers three courses: Psychology, Sociology, and Education. The Psychology Course concerns itself with the behavior of humans living in modern society. The Sociology Course concerns itself with society and the human environment. The Education Course concerns itself with people’s development.

Policy

The Department aims to foster members of society with insight and the ability to think creatively. It is indispensable in society to have multidisciplinary knowledge and be able to identify and resolve underlying problems through many different approaches. The curriculum offers experiencebased studies such as internship, fieldwork, and experimental research so that students will come to reexamine our common assumptions and explore social issues in our daily lives. The Department encourages education through the interchange of ideas in order to teach cooperation.

MAJOR

The Psychology Course

Psychology is the scientific study of the mechanism of the change of human mental states and their influence on human behavior. Experimental research, which has been important to the advancement of this field, is the main area of study. Statistics and computer practice are also emphasized.

The Sociology Course

Humans live in many kinds of communities: family, region, school, company etc. Sociology is the study of the way that our society functions. This course cultivates the practical ability to analyze problems.

The Education Course

Education is one of the most serious concerns of the modern world. There is an urgent need for our materially enriched country to re-examine its education system, especially in relation to mental care and lifetime study in an aging society. A wide and deep understanding is acquired through three areas: clinical education, lifetime education and school education.
