The Department of Human Environmental Science works on problems concerning the question: what is the optimum environment that induces, supports, and assists human development, and how is it formed? A characteristic of the department is to approach such problems from many diversified areas with strong background. In particular, the department emphasizes on the following four research areas: 1) natural environmental science, which examines the structure of nature as part of the human environment; 2) mathematics and informatics, which uses mathematics as a basic tool to study the information environment; 3) life environment, which studies the optimum environment from the viewpoint of our daily lives; and 4) social environment, which aims to resolve contradictions of the social environment.
