We all enjoy going wherever we want to go whenever we want to, and doing things by ourselves. Children, the elderly and people with mental and physical disabilities are no exception. Only by eliminating inconvenience and enabling everyone to lead everyday life without hindrance, in addition to experiencing delight and happiness through enjoying their hobbies and the seasons can we truly call it living a fulfilling and quality life in good physical and mental health. In order to achieve that, the Faculty of Health Sciences approaches this issue from two directions: “personal” support such as rehabilitation therapy and care, and “object and environmental” support such as welfare equipment and barrier-free housing. In addition to cultivating understanding and perspective of welfare regarding the human body and spirit, we aim to train human resources who have acquired hands-on expertise and are ready to work as professionals upon graduation.
Department of Rehabilitation
Physical Therapy Course
In the Physical Therapy program, the key concept is “activity,” according to which students study the means of supporting the development, recovery, and maintenance of healthy lifestyles. We train physiotherapists capable of working, not just with disabled people, but in a wide variety of areas.
Occupational Therapy Course
In the Occupational Therapy program, we aim to develop what patients and users would regard as healthy lifestyles. We cultivate the ability of students to apply the specialized characteristics of occupational therapy in fields ranging from neuroscience to social welfare.
Care Work Course
In the Care Work program, our goal is to produce nursing care specialists with knowledge and advanced skills related to health, medicine, and welfare. In this program, students acquire advanced nursing knowledge and expertise, along with the specialized skills needed to serve the local community.
Department of Human Care Engineering
Computer Science Course
The Computer Science Course aims to nurture engineers who have studied “computer science” systematically and are equipped with expertise on software development and network technology.
Barrier-free Architecture Course
At the Barrier-free Architecture Course, students will acquire architectural expertise in addition to deeper understanding of universal design, safety, security and the natural environment. We aim to nurture experts in living environments that will be required in the near future, equipped with the ability to consider not only the architectural and environmental perspective to allow everyone from the elderly to pregnant women, children and people with special needs to live happily and healthily, but also the co-existence with the natural environment.
