Faculty of Liberal Studies

This department aims at achievement of basic academic ability which is requisite for major subjects. We demand students to acquire the knowledge and education to go out into the world, and to cultivate vivid humanity. Based on the curriculums at the general high schools and colleges, our curriculum is planned to acquire general knowledge, sociality, and internationalism.In the course from the first to third grade, we unify the names of subjects and contents and provide the subjects necessary for Certificate for Students Achieving the Proficiency Level of Upper Secondary School Graduates. In these three grades, all the subjects are compulsory. We attempt that our three ICT departments are even with basic contents and levels of ICT related education. For that purpose, we provide common educational subjects for students studying in all the combined departments.

At the fourth and fifth grades, we arrange the general subjects agreed with the characteristics of each department. For example, our curriculum is organized to connect with major subjects. We offer students the subjects with accordance with a stage of development. Additionally, at these higher grades, the students can select the subjects for general education. We recommend students to make full use of the audiovisual equipment.
