Principle on Organizing
Liberal Arts Education

Leaders in science and technology are required to remain motivated to tackle, in cooperation with likeminded people from different fields, cross-sectional and complex issues that transcend the borders of specialties, while maintaining a foothold in science and technology. We believe that cultivating such ability and supporting outstanding specialized skills are the role of liberal arts education.

The goal of liberal arts education at the University is to provide, in a systematic, step-by-step manner, students with the following abilities, which are the foundation for superior expertise in today's complex, diverse, and globalized society, by complementing specialized education.

  • 1. Ability to look at nature, people, and society from a broad, multidimensional, and multifaceted perspective that transcends the boundaries of one's field of expertise
  • 2. Ability to communicate with people with diverse values in a globalized society, having an international mindset to understand and collaborate with people with diverse cultures and languages.
  • 3. Ability to think independently, and work on solutions using logical and critical thinking skills to discover issues on one's own
  • 4. Ability to make decisions and take action to proactively tackle challenges for which there are no single correct answers
  • 5. Ability to discipline oneself both physically and mentally to establish one‘s own positioning and career in a self-disciplined matter even in the midst of dramatic social changes.

Subject Classifications

General courses are largely divided into "human science" and "English"; students are required to take a designated number of units in each. "Human science" covers a variety of subjects that center on the humanities and social sciences, and includes foreign languages other than English as well as health and physical education courses.
In health and physical education, in particular, efforts are made to help students build strong bodies and acquire fine human qualities through activity in athletic facilities both on and off campus.
A variety of English courses are offered to foster the practical English-speaking ability that students will require as researchers and technicians in scientific and technical fields and to develop international communication skills.
