Nihon University’s College of Humanities and Sciences is the only comprehensive college in Japan founded on the principle of integrating humanities and sciences. There are a total of 18 departments, with 6 in humanities, 6 in social sciences, and 6 in natural sciences. While they each provide focused studies in their respective fields, the structure of the college allows for borderless learning that crosses over between the humanities and sciences. The unique curriculum organically integrates the acquisition of basic knowledge and qualifications so that the specialized knowledge students obtain can be applied in the real world. In this way, students become both generalists and specialists.

The roots of philosophy lie in “loving knowledge”. By exploring the various aspects of existence and life in our world including personal improvement, aesthetic appreciation, and religious beliefs, students will discover new things about themselves and the world around them. Therein lies the enjoyment of studying philosophy. The curriculum of the Department of Philosophy in the College of Humanities and Sciences covers these 4 categories of study: philosophy, ethics, aesthetics, and religious studies. Students will be able to study areas which they have the most interest in depth while acquiring a broad range of knowledge in the field.
You may ask, why do we research events that happened in the past? History is by no means just a series of past events. Every page of ancient writing, once understood in a modern context, brings greater understanding of modern day civilizations. The study of history is crucial for building our understanding of modern society and what the future may hold. The study of history undoubtedly brings us a greater-reaching and multifaceted understanding of the world’s societies and their activities.
Throughout our everyday lives, our use of language reflects our personal identities and our roles in society. In the global information age of the 21st century, language skills are in higher demand than ever before.

In this way, students will hone their insight and expressive capabilities. Students can satiate their curiosity in the Japanese language through far-reaching studies in the 3 fields of Japanese literature, Japanese linguistics, and calligraphic studies.

The Germanic languages spoken in countries such as Germany, Austria, and Switzerland developed over the complex interconnected history of one of Europe’s dominant cultural spheres. Drawing from these longstanding traditions, the Department of German Literature offers studies in the writings, language, and cultures of the Germanic world. After deepening their understanding of Europe, students will cultivate practical, real-world German language skills through language lessons by native German speakers and overseas study programs (as elective courses).
Sociology considers how the frameworks of our society are built from relationships between individuals, and their relationships with groups. However, in our modern society, these relationships are growing more diverse and complex, and as a result a variety of issues are arising. The Department of Sociology was established in 1920 as Japan’s first department of sociology at a private university. Through the curriculum which has been developed over the years since, students are provided with the flexible intelligence and sensibilities required to closely examine our complex modern society, as well as the imagination and planning skills needed to forge new paths into the future.
Social welfare is the study of how we can realize a society for better living to bring every member of our modern society happiness. In recent years, society has become more complex and diverse, and the number of people who face various problems and challenges in their daily lives is growing.

This department is an attractive choice for students aiming to become teachers, as they can obtain teaching licenses for any subject offered in the College of Humanities and Sciences, and they can also obtain multiple teaching licenses before they graduate. Many students also desire to enter companies or public administration after graduation, and we have a high record of success in securing them employment in these areas as well. In the Department of Education, students examine the principles of educational activities, acquire practical skills, and gain the capacity to excel in a wide variety of fields within society.
In this department, students can learn a wide variety of knowledge they can adapt towards real-world work as a junior high school or high school teacher, an instructor at a sports facility, or a researcher of physical education, sports science, or health science. Practical courses develop students’ basic skills as they obtain the knowledge and techniques required to provide guidance as instructors. Courses taught by highly-experienced faculty cover specialized topics in the theory and practice of training, coaching, and sports management to provide students with a wide range of knowledge befitting an education at a comprehensive university.
