The College of Arts and Sciences seeks students with a strong
desire to learn, respect for diversity, and ambitious personal goals.
Students should be capable of studying at their own
initiative in a manner consistent with the University’s
educational philosophy.The Department of Liberal Arts seeks to foster students
who possess broad-ranging knowledge and are capable of working
with those of differing views and cultures. Our goal is
to produce graduates with advanced conceptual and logical
skills to understand both today’s globalized
world and contemporary Japan from diversified perspectives,
identify issues on their own, and contribute to solving them.
