“Learning” and “understanding” involve the nature of well-being engraved into DNA

Today, our society face with fourth industrial revolution by force of economic development, borderless movement of people and goods, the arrival of Artificial Intelligence (AI) era. We enjoy affluent and healthy life in such a society. But some problems that threaten people's health is also being created at the same time ,aging society and shrinking population, lifestyle-related diseases invited by 24-hour society, food fraud, an outbreak of emerging infectious disease and so on.

To explore the nature of human beings, e.g. what is human, what is life, what is health and so on, we try to understand human comprehensively and systematically from three aspects “mind”, “body”, and “culture”.

Department of the Health Sciences of Mind and Body, which is distance learning course, was established in 2000 (at same time the UHAS was founded). In this course, many students study while working (as allied health professionals), and they have a strong motivation to “learning” and “understanding”. So, this “strong motivation” is nothing but the energy generated from will to express their humanity and engraved into DNA. Get the nature of well-being in our university course together.
