The education and research purposes of the College of Community Studies are to provide education that can develop the basic knowledge and practical abilities needed to form a regional society and community, as well as to widely contribute to the development of society and community development through conducting research related to community formation, which is the foundation for regional development.
There are 3 courses in the College of Community Studies as the fields of learning. Students can combine different subjects they want to learn across a variety of areas including public official, corporation, regional industry, sport and tourism. In addition, by acquiring universal basic knowledge of the 4 fields of [Sociology], [Economics], [Jurisprudence], and [Policy Study], the students can develop "the fundamental ability to detect and resolve problems", an ability that is required as a member of society. Our students will accurately grasp their target assignments through marketing and social research (Sociology), refer to relevant economic insights (Economics) and laws (Jurisprudence) and eventually formulate policies for solutions (Policy Study). They will cultivate their social skills to analyze problems and find solutions from a broad perspective, as well as provide policy proposals and creation of value no matter what kind of project they are involved in.
The objective of the College of Community Studies is to cultivate generalists who can accurately recognize problems related to community formation in regional society, conduct problem analysis and find direction for solutions, and contribute to the society and regional development, including policy proposals and the creation of value and regional activities.
In particular, we aim to cultivate a wide range of professionals who systematically understand the basic knowledge of specialized fields, who also understand themselves by associating with the culture and society, who have versatile skills, attitude, and willingness that are needed for intellectual activities, working life and social life, and who can play a central role in the formation of community in a variety of situations of regional society. The students will learn knowledge about humans and human understanding that are needed for leading a life in society, a knowledge of history, tradition and culture of their own region and country, as well as knowledge of history, tradition and culture of various countries and regions in the world.
