The problems tackled at each of the Departments (“Human Behavior and Environment Sciences”, “Health Science and Social Welfare” and “Human Informatics and Cognitive Sciences”) have unique characteristics and themes. However, they share a common mission of producing human resources for society in possession of a strong desire to create a better society in the earnest pursuit of human qualities, equipped with the basic skills needed to become a highly specialized professional or researcher. In order to embody this mission, the School of Human Sciences and the Graduate School of Human Sciences have set out 17 items under the following 7 fields as a guarantee of the core skills that students need to acquire (the Diploma Policy): A – Literacy; B – Methodology and Specialization; C – Interdiscipline and Diversity; D – Design Capabilities; E – Collaboration; F – Reflection and Ethics; G – Self-Education. Acquiring these capabilities and being able to put them into practice in the real world are a requirement for recognizing graduation and conferring degrees. These capabilities will allow students to open up diverse career paths in various industries after graduation, both in Japan and overseas.
