The Faculty of Administration offers you a range of undergraduate programs in the field of administrative studies. In this faculty, we use the word "administration" to connote deliberate and effective means of promoting cooperation among people in order to achieve common goals. The concept of administration is crucial not only for administrative bodies such as national and prefectural governments, municipalities, and various corporations, but also for volunteer organizations led by citizens.
At present, Japanese society faces myriad problems which would be difficult or impossible to solve without cooperation. Such problems include: corporate restructuring in a recessionary economy, governmental reforms in fiscal crises, as well as social welfare issues, community development, and environmental protection issues. In order to get people to cooperate in solving such difficult problems, you need to have a fine understanding of society and human nature. To develop that kind of understanding, you need to acquire a broad range of knowledge and skills relevant to public administration, sociology, politics, laws, business administration, economics, and philosophy. Especially in times of financial difficulty or recession, information processing skills are essential to eliminate waste and increase efficiency within organizational management. Furthermore, it is necessary to develop the ability to communicate in English in today's globalized society, where domestic companies must cooperate with overseas companies.
You can study a well-balanced combination of these fields of studies and specialties in the Faculty of Administration. In particular, the Faculty of Administration sets value on practical education which will enable you to serve in communities and society soon after graduation.
