Department of Human Cultures

Seven streams geared towards careers and further study

The Department of Human Cultures is divided into Seven streams: Communication, Cross-Cultural Understanding, Calligraphy, Art, Fashion, Psychology and Sport. Each stream is designed to lead either to further study at university or to a vocational career. The Calligraphy stream, for example, serves as a precursor to in-depth calligraphy studies at the Department of Japanese Cultures in the Faculty of Liberal Arts at Teikyo University; the Psychology stream prepares students for further study at the Faculty of Liberal Arts (Department of Psychology) or Faculty of Education; and communication skills are invaluable to many careers. The Department of Human Cultures is committed to maintaining small class sizes that allow individualized tuition tailored to different learning styles and academic aspirations.

Year 1 Year 1 concentrates on studies geared towards qualification in the chosen field, in line with future goals and aspirations. Students wishing to continue onto university have the option of undertaking preparatory subjects.
Year 2 Year 2 offers a wide selection of elective subjects designed to prepare students for either university or a career after graduation. Optional programs to study overseas short-term are available for those keen to further improve their English skills.

Department of Contemporary Business

Leaders and facilitators for the business world of tomorrow

The Department of Contemporary Business provides three streams of training for the modern business world: Modern Business, Business Practice, and Economics and Management. Students can also undertake a limited selection of subjects offered by Teikyo University at the Economics, Law, Liberal Arts, Language Studies and Education faculties (which are located on the same campus). Students keen to pursue further study can also apply to transfer directly to Teikyo University (excluding the Medicine, Pharma-Science, Science and Engineering, Medical Technology faculties and the Faculty of Fukuoka Medical Technology).

Year 1 Year 1 consists of compulsory core subjects together with a number of elective subjects for more advanced studies. Students wishing to continue onto university have the option of undertaking preparatory subjects.
