The learning method of the Department of Information Science, Faculty of Science and Faculty of Science and Engineering is e-learning (LMS) via the Internet from a personal computer at home.

You can use the Internet from your home computer to study with e-learning (LMS), and perform exercises and quizzes. The course acquisition test is not conducted at LMS. Take the exam at each venue.
If schooling (S) is also offered, select which form to study when registering for the course. If you take it as a media course, you cannot take it as a schooling course.


It is a class format in which students go to university for a fixed period and take classes directly. For the target subjects selected as schooling classes at the time of course registration, each subject will be taken for 2 or 3 days. Courses offered in two days will not be credited without studying at LMS. If the course is also offered in the media (M), select which form to study when registering for the course. If you take it as a schooling course, you cannot take it as a media course or text course.
