By grappling with knowledge deeply, broadly and critically, let us transform it into wisdom
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 two departments: the Department of Human and Social Sciences and the Department of Humanities. While differing in the approach taken, these two 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 and to think from different viewpoints, and to help them cultivate the ability to make judgments.
