The subject system of this department consists of "undergraduate basic subject" and "specialized education subject", "seminar", "teaching subject", and "university common subject".
Students will learn the basic knowledge and techniques about "management", "publlic policy", "information technology" and "mathematics" by taking "undergraduate basic subjects" in the 1st and 2nd year. The "undergraduate basic course" also includes English subjects that correspond to TOEIC exam preparation measures.
The seminar is a small specialized class. Students will make presentations, discussions and research at seminars. Students can take the basic seminar from the first year to the second year. This seminar is a great opportunity to know the actual atmosphere of the seminar as preparation for a full-scale seminar activity starting from the third year. After this basic seminar, students are assigned to seminars and laboratories of faculty members in the "Business Administration Field", "Public Policy Field" and "Information Technology Field" at the end of the second year. The seminars and laboratory decisions are determined by respecting the intent and enthusiasm of individual students to the utmost and having interviews with faculty members in charge. Through seminar activities, students will conduct graduation research in the fourth year.
For teaching subjects, it is necessary to take courses only for students who wish to acquire teacher's license.
Our university offers a variety of liberal arts subjects beyond the boundaries of undergraduate departments. By attending these subjects, students will have broad knowledge and perspectives as specialized professionals and can develop judgment and ethical feelings that can be adapted to the modern society. In this department, students need to take six subjects and pass in order to graduate.
In accordance with the needs of students who wish to acquire a wide range of education, students can also take courses of other departments of our university (approval of teachers in charge is required). In the case students take subjects, they will be certified as specialized education subjects up to 8 credits. In addition, the credit transfer agreement is implemented between our school and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Shizuoka University. In the case students take subjects, they will be certified as specialized education subjects up to 12 credits.
