Points of Learning

Abundant hands-on learning to acquire practical skills
We offera large number ofclasses with case studies through off-campus practical training, and classes inviting public administration/business practitioners and community leaders. Students can choose from three programs: public administration, business, and sports & culture, to acquire practical skills.
Four fields of study that form the basis of problem-solving skills
By acquiring basic knowledge in the four fields of sociology, economics, law, and policy studies, students will cultivate their “basic abilities to discover and solve problems.” By doing so, they will acquire the “abilities befitting to bachelor’s degree” which is required for administrative practice and business management.
Small-group education with an eye on post-graduation career paths
Opportunities are provided from the first year for students to think about their career paths after graduation, such as debriefing sessions by those who have passed civil service examinations and those who have received unofficial job offers from private companies. We emphasize small-group education so that each student can study with peace of mind, and our advisory staff are available for study and career counseling.
