Dean's Message

What does human development mean? It means discovering and extending the various abilities that a human or a group potentially possesses to achieve the well-being of each and every person. Established in 1992, the Faculty of Human Development has assumed the long tradition of the Faculty of Education. It was the first Faculty in Japan launched to conduct education and research on issues concerning human development. To promote this research, the Graduate School of Human Sciences was reorganized in 2007, and the Graduate School of Human Development and Environment was established. With over one hundred faculty members, the Graduate School is a pioneering academic community pursuing the free exchange of various scholarly knowledge.
