Human Sciences

In today's world, we are shifting toward a sophisticated information-based society, a declining birthrate, an aging population, more people going on to higher levels of education, and greater globalization. People are confronted with difficult issues on many fronts. In the Human Sciences Major, we train students to have a deep scientific understanding of human growth, development, psychology and behavior throughout the course of life, so they can contribute on a practical level to education, learning, social welfare, social support, and improvement of local living, and thereby help people live richer, more fulfilling lives.

The type of student we are looking for:

-A person interested in human activities over the course of life, who wishes to master basic knowledge and practical skills to conduct research in that area
-A person who wishes to master basic knowledge and practical skills for providing support and guidance for growth and development over the course of life
-A person with concern for people, living and society, who thinks in a multifaceted and flexible fashion based on a broad perspective
