Faculty information

An educational environment dedicated to the acquisition of a broad range of knowledge and practical skills

Research in the Faculty of Liberal Arts does not focus solely on letters, but includes a wide range of studies in fields such as history and behavioral psychology. Study in the faculty also includes novel, interdisciplinary approaches that cross over multiple fields, such as the humanities and sociology. Contemporary issues are examined through contexts of space and time, considering both classical and modern views with a broad perspective for the empowerment and education of students.

An open curriculum provides a wide range of study opportunities that transcend the boundaries of faculties and departments.

One distinguishing feature of Teikyo University is the flexibility given to its students to study in fields of their interest outside of their faculty or department. Many of the classes offered in the Faculties of Economics, Law, Liberal Arts, Language Studies, and Education as well as the Junior College at the Hachioji Campus may be taken by any student as an elective course, and up to 34 credits acquired in this way can be applied to graduation requirements.

Freely studying the societies of today while envisioning and predicting societies to come

Students will acquire the fundamental theories and research methods required to analyze and understand societies, cultures, and peoples.

Through a broad range of practical learning and career education courses, students will develop and improve their practical social and professional skills.

Department of Psychology
Learning the fundamentals of psychology along with strong professional abilities including clinical psychology

After study in the fundamentals of psychology, students choose a course of specialization from their third year onwards. A full complement of laboratories and facilities, including a monitoring room for observing behavioral development, provide valuable learning opportunities.
[Basic Course]
This course looks at how people obtain information (sensory and cognitive) about their external environment, which then informs their behavior, and how experiences modify behaviors (through learning and memory).
[Developmental Course]
This course considers the various phases of people's lives, researching the developmental aspects of behavior and cognition, socialization processes, and the possibilities of educational and supportive approaches.
[Social Psychology Course]
In this course, comprehensive research considers social behavior from the micro-level (such as interpersonal attraction and attitudes) to the macro-level (such as crowd behavior and consumption behavior).
