Aims and types of personnel to be trained
The Graduate School of Human Relations, in keeping with the founding spirit of the university, will provide academic knowledge which instills profound "expertise" and broad "interdisciplinary character" relating to sociology, psychology, and education, and will aim to nurture researchers and educators with a high level of discernment to succeed on the front line, as well as professionals instilled with advanced expertise, towards a "globalizing" society. "Expertise," an "interdisciplinary character," and "internationality" may be regarded as the distinguishing features of our graduate school.
Based on this,
The master's programs aim to foster the basic research abilities required to conduct research in the fields of sociology, psychology, and pedagogy, in addition to the abilities required to engage in professions requiring high levels of specialization.
The doctoral programs aim to foster the outstanding research abilities required to conduct independent research activities and engage in other highly specialized tasks as researchers in the fields of sociology, psychology, and education, as well as the rich academic attainments which form their basis.
The Major in Sociology aims to foster researchers and educators with a high level of discernment to succeed on the front line, as well as professionals instilled with advanced expertise, by providing academic attainments which instill deep expertise and a broad "interdisciplinary character" relating to human behavior, society, and culture.
The Major in Psychology aims to foster independent researchers with a high level of discernment as well as professionals who will engage in highly specialized tasks, through mastery of psychology as a rigorous empirical science on both knowledge and technical fronts.
The Major in Education aims to foster researchers and highly specialized professionals who will widely investigate activities related to character formation from the perspective of and as they are concerned with education, by employing theoretical and historical as well as empirical and experimental methodologies.
Abilities required of faculty members
In order to achieve the aims of this graduate school, expertise, an interdisciplinary nature, and internationalism will be the indispensable abilities required of individual faculty members. Faculty members will be required to foster capacities for pioneering contributions to the world while remaining broad-minded and open to society and avoiding being inward-looking to the narrow confines of academic circles, with the potential thus engendered having a ripple effect on students and encouraging collaborative efforts in a culture of hangaku-hankyo(learning while teaching, teaching while learning).
Three policies (Diploma Policy, Curriculum Policy, and Admissions Policy) in each of its courses (Master's Programs, Doctoral Programs) and each of its Majors (Sociology, Psychology, Education) are discretely stipulated in accordance with the graduate school's aims.
