The educational principle of the School of Health Studies, which was established in April 2018, is to foster personnel who will support a future society where everyone can lead healthy lives. There is not just one way to solve the various challenges facing Japan due to the unprecedented rapid aging of its society. There are various approaches. In the School of Health Studies, students will obtain specialized scientific evidence-based knowledge and skills related to food/nutrition, exercise and mental health,. At the same time, students will develop management skills drawing from the social sciences, such as community social work, sociology, and economics.
