Five Characteristics of Our Developmental Education
Acquisition of ICT skills
The identity as a graduate from the Faculty of Information Sciences and Arts lies in becoming a creator/user of information. First, our students will take Basic Practice of Information Sciences and Arts in their first year to thoroughly acquire basic ICT skills, and aim to pass the IT Passport Examination (a 100% pass rate across our Faculty) with the support of the Learning Support Office (Information).
Our students can learn to be internationally minded through continuous English education from their first to fourth year, various courses to learn across cultures, and lectures taught only in English. We will conduct research and educational exchanges with universities in Europe, the United States, and Asia to deepen friendships and implement overseas study programs for our students at these universities. The Faculty of Information Sciences and Arts has established an SGU Room in which the full-time English lecturers are stationed. The SGU (Super Global University) Room provides not only consultations on learning English, but also support in obtaining TOEIC and other qualifications and counselling for studying abroad and overseas training programs.
The Faculty of Information Sciences and Arts is aiming to become a center for the promotion of diversity and inclusion, and promoting the formation of a system and research and educational environment in which our students can seek new solutions to challenges through the power of diversity in collaboration with researchers in fields outside of the humanities and sciences as well as all people involved. Moreover, we have held the Diversity Symposium annually since 2017 academic year in order to develop human resources with the knowledge, skills and mindset of diversity and inclusion. We invite leading experts in various fields to the Symposium with the goal of promoting and providing enlightenment regarding a society in which women can play active roles.
We provide guidance to our students to raise their awareness regarding finding employment through our classes and seminars. Our lecturers, who have many years of experience working in companies, provide career counseling and support so that all of our students can find employment in their chosen industry. Graduates from the Faculty of Information Sciences and Arts who have acquired ICT skills through our practical education and a wide range of knowledge from our three courses are expected to find employment in a variety of industries.
Class teacher system
At the time of admission, ten students are assigned to one lecturer to make up one class. In the first and second year, the class teachers monitor their class students’ learning and living conditions and provide appropriate guidance. This system builds a sense of unity among students and the class teacher, so that our students can continue their studies without worry.
