The Human Science Course aims to equip students with the skills necessary to understand uniquely human characteristics and realize the optimal environment, products, and information for the humanization of technology. Our goal is to integrate theory and practice through mathematical analysis and consideration of the scientific guidelines of design based on physiological and psychological characteristics.
Originally a course under the Global 30 Project, theHuman Science International Course is a doctoral program designed to allow international students to obtain an advanced degree, regardless of their Japanese language ability, by providing them with classes and dissertation guidance in English. We aim to provide an education that equips students with the following two abilities: (1) The ability to understand research on human nature from a scientific point of view (2) The ability to conduct research to propose optimal human environments, products, and information within a few years after graduating This kind of education helps us train professionals who are interested in—and possess an aptitude for—human-based design from a science standpoint.
Graduates of this course pursue diverse career paths. Thanks in part to our profound understanding and specialized knowledge of human nature, we are able to train professionals who go on to successful careers in a wide range of fields.
