Humanity and Society Major

Humanity and Society Major

You can gather the threads of diverse learning if you are interested in humanity, society, the environment, or life.

Freely creating systems to facilitate learning through cross-discipline approaches to humanity, society, the environment, and life

The Humanity and Society Major strives to foster students' understanding of people nurturing their lives on earth and the societies and environments in which these people live their daily lives. Through understanding of mutual relationships, it aims to foster positive human qualities to enable students to live in a rapidly changing 21st century and cultivate women who combine a broad vision and a capacity for judgment. This major is also characterized by the fact that it covers a broad range of fields, including psychology, economics, law, social science, history, biology, nutrition, and information science. By studying each area of humanity, society, the environment, and life in a cross-discipline manner, students are allowed to freely create their own learning system. If you have a vague interest in economics, how about approaching it from a multifaceted perspective, such as through history, psychology, or the environment? You will surely encounter an unexpected side of it. It all starts from a pure curiosity to know about things, which will enable you to gain knowledge for yourself. In addition, our aim is for students to acquire the attitude to focus on and deeply investigate a specific topic through seminars in small-group settings. We hope you will gather the threads of knowledge and discover new knowledge.
