In the 21st century, ICT (Information and Communication Technology) has become a supporting foundation for society, and its utilization is considered to greatly influence the lives of people and the development of the economy.
In April of 2009, the "Faculty of Information Sciences and Arts" was established at Toyo University to pioneer the new information research field based on the demand from society to properly utilize information communication technology in various industrial fields and human behavior. We train human resources who can understand the relationships between information and various knowledge fields such as industry, economy, culture, arts, environment, and psychology, and who can creatively increase information value in various social fields.
This Faculty has only one department; the Department of Information Sciences and Arts. In addition to "Information Basics," students comprehensively learn according to their interests by selecting from four specialized courses, "Information Sciences," "Media Culture," "Environmental Information," and "Psychological Information," which are important specialized integrated fields. Beyond the arts and sciences, the curriculum promotes the acquisition of the following skills.
The Faculty of Information Sciences and Arts seeks to cultivate "Creators / Handlers of First Class Information" as human resources who can accurately collect, edit, and express information from various fields such as sociology, economics, culture, the arts, the environment, and psychology beyond the frames of culture and science, and who can take the lead in a knowledge information society promoted by ICT (Information and Communication Technology).
