Department of Behavioral Social Sciences

Under the new conditions presented by contemporary society, such as urban globalization and the ubiquity of advanced information networks, there is growing needs and expectations in the fields of industry, transportation, and culture to historically and theoretically explain social structures and how they are changing, to conduct comparative research with other cultures and societies, and to conduct research on policies to address various social issues associated with internationalization and aging. This has led to an urgent need to achieve a fusion of and balance between survey research focused on fieldwork and the theoretical and historical research underlying it. To cultivate students who will conduct interdisciplinary inquiries into these issues, this department recruits students in three programs: Sociology, Social Anthropology, and Social Welfare.
