Undergraduate

Tokyo Kasei University’s four faculties and twelve departments train specialists to support a variety of life stages. Through lectures by faculty members who are at the forefront of their respective fields of specialization as well as practical activities and exercises, we train students to deepen their professional expertise to be able to play a central role in their chosen fields.

Home Economics

The Faculty of Home Economics is composed of six departments; the Department of Costume and Clothing Science, which traces its origins to the Wayō Saihō Denshūjo founded by the school’s founder Tatsugorō Watanabe, along with the Department of Juvenile Education, the Department of Child Education, the Department of Food and Nutrition, the Department of Environmental Science and Education, and the Department of Art and Design.
All of our Departments and Majors are programs in which students master the ideas, mindset, and art necessary to support people’s everyday experience and create rich and enjoyable lives. In this regard, our aim is that the students themselves will grow up to be self-reliant and independent human beings.
Precisely because home economics is a discipline that is rooted in people’s daily experience, we are cultivating human resources who will value learning that combines knowledge with practical activities and who will be able to continually enrich and support people’s lives as specialists.

Humanities

The Faculty of Humanities consists of the Department of English Communication, the Department of Psychological Counseling, and the Department of Social Education and Welfare, each of which has its own distinct characteristics. A watchword shared by these three departments is “respect for diversity.”
The Department of English Communication addresses the theme of communication with people from linguistic, cultural, historical, and religious traditions distinct from Japan. The Department of Psychological Counseling deals with a variety of psychological conditions, including mental problems such as depression, bullying, and school refusal. Finally, the Department of Social Education and Welfare considers the lifestyles of people facing various difficulties such as disability, poverty, and abuse, and possibilities for education that transcends generational boundaries.
In each department, our aim is to learn about, engage with, and come to a mutual understanding of the existence of others.
The topics addressed by these three departments are key issues for contemporary Japanese society, as well as essential considerations for living in a global era. At the Faculty of Humanities, our aim is to train human resources who will be able to think for themselves about what they can do in society and then put this into practice.

Health Sciences

There are two departments in the Faculty of Health Sciences, namely the Department of Nursing and the Department of Rehabilitation.
In the Department of Nursing, we train human resources who will acquire advanced knowledge, skills, and attitudes as nursing professionals to be able to provide ongoing support that will enable people to live in the way that they want through the process from birth to old age and peaceful death.
Over four years of study, we will train professionals who will acquire the professional knowledge, skills, sensibilities, and meticulous attention to detail so that they be able to practice nursing and rehabilitation services to support people “living their own lives in the way that they want.”

Child Studies

For many years, Tokyo Kasei University produced graduates who became kindergarten and nursery school teachers, and many of its alumni are active in the field of child education.
On the basis of this history and tradition, the Faculty of Child Studies was created with the aim of training nursery school teachers capable of bringing out the potential of all children, including those who require special support. We train individuals who can offer professional services to children in need of support, such as those with allergic conditions or developmental disabilities. Our graduates also possess skills in areas such as health, medical care, and school-based special needs education.
Another strength of the Faculty of Child Studies is the ability of its graduates to acquire the qualifications and licenses necessary to become nursery school, kindergarten, or special education teachers.
