The Purpose of Education

To foster human resources with a comprehensive understanding of human beings from the aspects of mind, body, and culture. The benefit of this understanding can contribute to constructing a society comprising people who have good mental and physical health.

We comprehensively examine the multi-faceted nature of humankind via a three-way approach in order to deepen our understanding of humankind and broaden our horizons.

Human arts and sciences is an entirely new academic field revolving around the multifaceted study of humankind from the point of view of mind, body and culture. Working across a wide range of fields including life sciences, brain sciences, psychology, cultural sciences and intercultural communication, our aim is to explore and establish a comprehensive understanding of humankind in response to the question “what is human existence?” This makes it possible to explore and create knowledge in a more dynamic manner including integrating knowledge across different fields in new ways that would be impossible within a conventional subdivided academic framework, gaining insight based on a broad perspective and creatively coming up with new ideas.

Academic knowledge that will become the practical knowledge of each individual to lead more proactive and healthy life

Health Sciences of Mind and Body

Learning Online

We offer a full range of online tuition to make it easier for people to fi nd time in their busy lives for learning.

Students can take classes in taught subjects and even sit fi nal exams in text-based subjects, all via their computer.

What is online tuition?

“I want to continue working while I study.” “I want to study without a set timeframe.” ‘“I live too far away to attend taught classes.”

Online tuition is a study system that caters to needs such as these.

Essentially, the system enables students to take classes in taught credits from home via the Internet, instead of attending classes in person.

Tuition procedure

Students take online courses via recorded teaching materials streamed over the Internet, starting from chapter one. They then sit a recap test for the relevant chapter and, if they pass, proceed to the next chapter. Once students have reached the fi nal chapter, they are required to submit a fi nal report. If their report is given a passing grade, they receive accreditation for the relevant credit or credits.
