Department of Philosophy and History

Who are we? Where did we come from and where are we headed? As we enter into a new century today, we are faced with the challenge of overcoming conventional cultural and societal traditions. However, we can on no accounts depict a clear image of our future without understanding the paths that we, as human beings, have traveled over the course of our history and who we are. The Philosophy and History Department aims to reflect on such fundamental issues related to human identity.

Department of Human Behavioral Sciences

As the world undergoes major changes in the wake of the information age and globalization, there is renewed interest in the world of the mind, connections between human beings and the coexistence of human beings and nature. In such an age, the Human Behavioral Science Department seeks to clarify human behavior, the society/environment around us, and the connection between the two from various standpoints, based on scientific methodologies like observation, surveys and experiments. Through its unique curriculum, in which each course focuses on its own academic field but is organically linked to one another, the Human Behavioral Science Department aims to cultivate individuals with the ability to understand the complexity of human beings and their environments.

Department of Language and Culture

The Language and Culture Department seeks to inquire into the cultures created by humankind through the lens of language. Documents concerning the literature and ideologies of Japan, the Asian countries and the Western countries will be read to instigate an examination into the forms and mechanisms of language. Cultural aspects related to language, such as theater, music and film are also subjects of investigation in this department. Through such studies, we aim to discover the thought processes of human beings throughout history, in the present and into the future.

Department of Cultural Management

文化は創造力や感性を育むことで豊かな人間性を涵養するとともに、来たるべき社会の新たな価値を創出し、他者との共感を通した相互理解を促進することで、共生的社会の基礎を形作ります。文化構想学科は、従来の学問分野からはこぼれ落ちてしまいがちな文化的事象をも積極的に考察対象とすることで、現代社会で必要とされる文化への深い理解を養います。また、そうした深い知見に根ざしつつ、多様な文化的事象を社会のなかで積極的に活用することで、現代社会が抱える諸問題の解決に取り組み、21世紀型成熟社会を文化の面から担う人材を育てます。
