Department of Human Development and Sports Sciences
In April 2011, the Department of Human Development and Sports Sciences was established within the School of Human and Social Sciences. Learning is facilitated by “the sharing of culture all around the world through sports.” From sports competitions to sports lifestyles, there is a wealth of theories and achievements to study. By taking advantage of the unlimited potential of sports, immeasurable possibilities flourish in each individual’s lifestyle, region, and contribution to the creation of society on a wide spectrum. Human Development and Sports Sciences help cultivate the outstanding talents of our supporters and coaches.
In April 2012, the Department of Sports Sciences was established within the School of Human and Social Sciences. This new department strives to raise top athletes for a wide range of sports competitions as well as rear leaders to support those athletes. While studying about society, culture, welfare, psychology, in addition to all knowledge encompassing sports, we plan to raise the efficacy of human development and power of achievements, raising victors with the world as their stadium.
TIU has been putting great effort and support towards sports encouragement since 2007. Through recruiting the highest level of coaches from all over the world, we are able pursue top achievement in student competition and manage a well-balanced educational practice. A vast amount of our students are participating in the Varsity Teams (Kyoka Clubs) for Baseball, Soccer, Women’s Softball, Women’s Soccer, Ekiden, Golf, Tennis, American Football, Weight Lifting, Kendo, Wind Orchestra, Archery, Sadou (Japanese Tea Ceremony), and Model United Nations. TIU is always committed to upholding a sound structure of leadership and strengthen the expansion of these clubs.
With the mindset of “Great spirit refines great leaders” at the backbone of the sports department, many great leaders who understand what it means to be an international coach are being scouted with the utmost expectations.
