Department of Social Welfare
Study welfare and create a better future.Social welfare studies support the foundation of a happy society.
Social welfare studies support the building of a more people-friendly living environment for people with disabilities and people who face all kinds of difficulties in their everyday lives. Counseling and support in this area demand a well-rounded education and specialized knowledge, rich humanity and a multilateral perspective, since people’s lifestyles varied. The Department of Social Welfare has been newly established based on the track record of the Social Welfare Course which has turned out many qualified social workers in the 10 years since it started.
(“Department of Social Welfare” will be established in 2013.)
