Faculty information

A Unique, Hands-on Education

The rapidly changing society we live in today requires the establishment and implementation of ground-breaking, comprehensive policies. At the Faculty of Social Sciences, our goal is to train skilled individuals with the analytical abilities and initiative to perform hands-on problem solving based on a wide range of accumulated knowledge and theories. This faculty has been established to address the various issues facing modern society, especially those surrounding our aging society as well as environmental concerns. Accordingly, the Faculty is comprised of two departments: the Department of Policy Studies, which focuses mainly on studies within the public sector, and the Department of Business Administration, which centers on studies within the private sector. An interdisciplinary curriculum allows students to proactively further their studies by taking courses in other departments as well.
