To pursue people's well-being, both from the viewpoints of welfare and psychology and to nurture expertise and comprehensive techniques as professionals.
We currently face various problems, such as an aging society, bullying issues, and discrimination. To fi nd ways to solve these, we must study the relationship between humans and society from the viewpoint of welfare and psychology.

In addition to the curriculum, the students are able to learn a wide range of subjects such as society and culture. This department nurtures professionals who have deep understandings of every single human being and fully practice their specialized skills and integrated techniques.
