College of Liberal Arts

Fostering talented individuals who have a broad base of knowledge
and excellent analytical skills.

The College maintains both the smaller scale thinking needed to train in a student's major field of study as well as the larger scale thinking needed for a proper liberal education. A large variety of subjects have been set up in the College of Liberal Arts, letting students broaden their points of view with regard to any number of topics, and acquire the flexible thinking patterns necessary to clarify and solve the various problems faced by contemporary society. With a faculty made up of expert professors with practical working experience in their fields, the College of Liberal Arts has developed an educational system composed of three parts: the student's major, topics in foreign languages, and topics in sports and health.
