Department of Community Development

Students explore the basic organizations needed to build a welfare society where both social development and public good can co-exist, as well as how communities are formed and in what ways members can work together. The curriculum will focus particularly on the problem of social exclusion, which is being exacerbated by the issues of a declining birthrate, low fertility, and aging trends, as well as by globalization, students examine effective methods of addressing such issues from the fundamental perspective of the sanctity of life. In addition, students may obtain certification as social researchers.

Department of Social Work

Students learn not only the knowledge and skills related to welfare practices but also the relevant systems and regulations. By studying relevant specialized disciplines such as sociology and psychology, students explore social welfare in a broader sense. Students can qualify for the social worker and psychiatric social worker examinations by earning credits for the designated subjects.
