The School of Human Sciences was established in 1987 in order to meet challenges posed by contemporary issues with a more flexible and interdisciplinary approach; that is, to approach the field of human sciences without being constrained by past traditional academic structures and learning styles. The school aims to train true leaders who, with rich perspectives, will be pioneers in the field of “human sciences.” The mission of “human sciences” is to begin to unravel some of the problems related to human beings and pursue a prosperous and comfortable existence for both human beings and the environment. The three departments in this undergraduate school use rich, multifaceted, flexible approaches to deal with these challenges.
The most remarkable aspect of education in universities is “academic freedom.” Since the Korean education system does not allow students to study what they want, I did not have enough time to do what I wanted. After joining Waseda University, I am really enjoying my campus life.
