Liberal Arts and Sciences

It has been established that of 2012 the planning and management of Tokyo City University’s general education (Liberal Arts, Specialized Basic Education, Foreign Languages, Teacher Education, and Physical Education) will be performed by the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

The following 3 colleges and 8 departments are now organized under the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

  1. Humanities and Social Sciences Division
    (Humanities, Social Sciences, Educational Science, Sports Sciences)
  2. Natural Sciences Division
    (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Earth Sciences, Information Studies)
  3. Foreign Languages Education Center

Management Policy

In accordance with Tokyo City University Group’s educational philosophy of “Developing members of society with sound minds and a passion for a better future,” the University’s three campuses and 6 colleges will work together under the College of General Education to hold to the following educational objectives.

Educational Objectives

  1. Foster an ability in students to view things with a wide perspective for a deeper understanding of the world around them.
  2. Develop students’ ability to use and rely on their personal judgment.
  3. Help students acquire an international perspective.
  4. Train students in the fundamentals of their specializations.
  5. Develop in students communication abilities vital for life in today’s society.

Currently, students enrolled in the colleges of Engineering and Knowledge Engineering can take research courses in any of the departments under the College of General Education. We are planning in the future to provide the same opportunity to students majoring in other subjects as well.

From 2012, the university has also established seminars that incorporate comprehensive content to further enhance our Liberal Arts curriculum.

In the future we plan on making it possible for any TCU student to have access to the new liberal arts curriculum at any of our three campuses in Setagaya, Todoroki, and Yokohama.
