Striving for the creation of a sustainable society where humanity and the environment co-exist

As one of the first humanities-based environmental faculties established at a university, The Faculty of Humanity and Environment approaches environmental issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. The human race is currently re-evaluating its pursuit of material wealth in response to demands for a new kind of society where people coexist in harmony with the environment. We feel that our mission in the Faculty of Humanity and Environment is to face the problems posed by these endeavors as we strive to realize the creation of a sustainable society.
A wide variety of perspectives and the ability to respond to the many issues we face will be required. In the Faculty of Humanity and Environment, we do not only impart knowledge, but cultivate the capacity to develop solutions for various problems. Such abilities will surely prove useful as our society moves forward. We also hope to train skilled individuals who can contribute to the realization of a sustainable society person by person, from environmental experts to average citizens.

Department of Humanity and Environment

In the Department of Humanity and Environment, we comprehensively approach environmental issues from many interdisciplinary fields. The curriculum has five groups of classes available in "Law and Politics", "Economics and Management", "Society and Communities", "Humanities", and "Natural Sciences", which are combined with core environmental studies. These classes are used in our 5 courses: "Ecological Economics and Management", "Regional Environmental Coexistence", "International Environmental Cooperation", "Environmental Culture Development", and "Environmental Science". By taking the classes recommended for each course, you will be able to engage in an interdisciplinary and structured learning experience. Field studies and "Human Environment" seminars with an emphasis on gaining firsthand experiences further enhance the program.

Department of Humanity and environment(Sustainability Co-creation Programme /SCOPE)

The Faculty of Humanity and Environment will establish a new academic course called “SCOPE” from Fall 2016. The SCOPE has as its objective to develop “GLOCAL (global + local)” human resources with in-depth knowledge on environmental studies. The “GLOCAL” human resources are those who can command both global and local points of view respectively, and with which they lead to the creation of a sustainable society.
◆Unique Experience: Co-creation
The keyword of the SCOPE is “co-creation”, which goes beyond “co-operation”. With it, we aim to develop human resources capable to challenge difficult task voluntarily and proactively.
