Liberal Arts and Sciences

Since 2012, the planning and management of Tokyo City University’s general education subjects are executed by the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences. These classes fall under the rubrics of Liberal Arts, Specialized Basic Education, Foreign Languages, Teacher Education, and Physical Education.

The following three colleges and eight departments are now organized under the aegis of Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences:

  1. Humanities and Social Sciences Division
    (Humanities and Social Sciences; Physical Sciences; Teacher-Education Course)
  2. Natural Sciences Division
    (Mathematics; Physics; Chemistry, Biology, and Geology; Informatics Education)
  3. Foreign Language Education Center

Management Policy

Tokyo City University Group’s pedagogy ensures that students receive both a well-rounded and profound education, one in which they will graduate as active and enlightened members of society, serving such with sound mind and passion for a vibrant future. TCU’s two campuses and eight colleges are so well-coordinated that together with the College of General Education they adhere seamlessly to the following educational objectives:

Educational Objectives

  1. Foster an ability in students to solve challenges that may arise, be they technical or humanistic, by employing a worldview as gleaned through rigorous course work and close contact with educators as well as peers.
  2. Develop students’ ability to both use and rely on individual judgment and thus possess the confidence to voice such.
  3. Ensure that students acquire an informed worldview.
  4. Train students in the fundamentals of their specializations.
  5. Develop in students confidence to communicate across educational disciplines as well as world cultures for a more dynamic role in today’s ever-evolving 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 currently planning 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 curricula.

In the future, TCU students will have access to the new Liberal Arts curricula at our two campuses (Setagaya and Yokohama).
