A community is a social organization created by people who actively participate and interact with one another. From such perspective of community formation, students explore the new study of human services, which integrates various disciplines related to human welfare.
Students explore the basic organizations needed to build a welfare society where both social development and public good can co-exist as well as how communities are formed and in what members can work together. The curriculum will focus particularly on the problem of social exclusion, which is being exacerbated by the progression of low-fertility and aging trends as well as globalization, and examine effective methods of addressing such issues from the fundamental perspective of the sanctity of life. In addition, students may obtain certification as social researchers.
