A faculty that can respond to local societal issues, including earthquake reconstruction and regional development

In FY 2016, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences was reorganized and now has two departments instead of four. We aim to foster talented personnel who can focus on local societal issues from the following three perspectives:

  • The ability to understand the various problems of modern society, which is undergoing great change, from a comprehensive perspective
  • Expertise and skills relating to people, culture, society, and the environment
  • The dynamism to notice for themselves issues in local and international society, and solve them
