Interdisciplinary education and research based on human dignity
The Graduate School of Human Sciences offers five majors: Education, Psychology, Sociology, Social Services, and Nursing. All majors conduct interdisciplinary education and research based on human dignity with scientific knowledge, clinical knowledge, policy and management knowledge, and nurture people who can contribute to society through both theory and practice/clinical practice.
In the first semester, the program focuses on building a foundation for entering highly specialized careers in practical settings including practical research. In the second semester, the focus is on developing career paths for academic researchers looking to contribute to this academic field through knowledge from practical/clinical research.
Academic Purposes of Each Major
The programs in Education pursue pedagogy as a real science required in the age of globalization, while the programs in Psychology offer a wide range of studies in both the basic and clinical areas of psychology. The programs in Sociology offer a rich variety of specialized courses dealing with important aspects of contemporary society, and the programs in Social Services also promote education that integrates theory and practice by providing an innovative curriculum.
The Master’s Program in Nursing offers four distinctive research fields to nurture people who can contribute to local and international communities.
Our interdisciplinary education and research program is based on respect for human dignity. It involves scientific knowledge, clinical knowledge, and policy and management knowledge, and nurtures researchers and professionals who can contribute to society through both theoretical and practical/clinical work. In the Master’s program, we aim to nurture researchers and highly-skilled professionals who can play an active role in practical and clinical settings. In the Doctoral program, we aim to nurture advanced researchers who can make academic contributions based on practical and clinical knowledge.
