While contemporary lifestyles feel rich and abundant as a result of information digitization and globalization, we are now facing new types of problems related to low birthrates and aging, personal nutrition and health, childrearing environments, home and community life, and consumer lifestyles.
This faculty provides a broad academic perspective and high level of education to enable students to examine these types of issues. Its goal is to cultivate individuals who will make ongoing contributions to society by thinking about overall improvements to quality of life and who will play active roles in various fields, informed by a broad perspective.
Key Points of Learning in the Faculty of Human Life Science
This faculty is divided into the three fields of human life science, nutrition science, and pedology.
