As members of society, how should we interact with society in the real world? The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences can help you to cultivate the knowledge and thinking skills needed to be able to find answers to this kind of question. The Faculty undertakes research in a wide range of fields, including human psychology, education, languages, literature, philosophical thought, history, social studies and cultural studies, etc.
The circumstances in which we have our existence are changing all the time. As a member of this kind of constantly changing society, what can we do, and what should we do? The goal of The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is to explore and research methods for achieving the kind of society in which people can feel hope, and try to put these methods into practice.
The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences has 2 departments: the Department of Human and Social Sciences and the Department of Humanities. While differing in the approach taken, these 2 divisions have the same basic aims, The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences covers 12 individual fields of study; the reason for covering such a wide range of fields is the desire to help students acquire broad-ranging knowledge, as well as the ability to view phenomena from different perspectives to think from different viewpoints, and to help them cultivate the ability to make judgements.

The social studies discipline examines the relationship between people and society from a social science perspective. It seeks to cultivate in students a broadminded attitude toward the differing values that different communities have evolved, a willingness to undertake thorough fieldwork, and precise information-gathering abilities and critical thinking skills, so that they are able to address the various problems that affect contemporary society. In this field of study, it is possible to acquire-through social investigation, practical training etc.―the problem―solving skills needed to be able to tackle (from both theoretical and practical approaches) the issues affecting people and society. Majoring in social studies not only helps the student to acquire the basic requirements of a cultivated, well-rounded member of society, it is also directly useful for choosing the career that one wishes to follow in the future.
The humanities comprise philosophy (the origin of all academic disciplines) as well as related humanities subjects. The humanities encompasses a wide range of fields, including the Western classical authors of Greece and Rome, archeology and history with their study of humanity’s past, the cultures of the five major linguistic families (which have been the main source of human culture, art and literature, etc.), and the new field of cultural representation theory, which emphasizes research theory. The curriculum in the Department of Humanities attaches great importance to the freedom and self-directedness which are fundamental aspects of university education, encouraging students not only to acquire knowledge in individual fields, but also to actively pursue interdisciplinary learning that straddles different fields of study, for example by combining history and philosophical thought, religion and sociology, language and culture, or temporal and spatial approaches, etc.
