Structure of Faculty and Departments

Faculty Outline/Principles

Broadening the mind and nurturing skills to solve various issues Aiming to create the next generation of women leaders through education

     There is a strong need to produce talented people who will combine a global vision with the cultured manners of the future generation in order to solve the problems of present-day society. Therefore, FWU was restructured into one faculty with three departments, with great importance being attached to "international" and "culture". Practical education with a strong emphasis on independently expanding students' learning horizons will take place at the faculties set up in the International College of Arts and Sciences, focusing on "international", "environment" and "food and health", and this will lead to the internationalization of our campus. In addition, through integrated education, students can develop various viewpoints and critical thinking skills by studying a wide range of subjects, including both basic core subjects in each faculty and special subjects from other departments.

New Curriculum Highlights

Enhancement of Common Core Education

A common intellectual base has been created that transcends the frame of academic fields. The aims of this are:

  • To show the students the appeal of each academic field
  • To nurture critical-thinking skills and learn multiple ways of thinking through studying wide-ranging subjects
  • To draw the interest of students to the problems that modern society holds
Emphasis on English Language

     In the first year and the first semester of the 2nd year, all students are divided into small-group classes of approximately 15 students with similar language proficiencies where they learn English communication skills and cultivate their expression skills. In addition, during the 2nd semester of their 2nd year students can choose advanced English as an elective subject to further improve their English skills.

Experience as a Means of Learning

     Students develop practical skills to find their own way in society by adopting experiential learning methods that link the classroom learning with problems in our globalizing modern society. Clink here for further details.

First Year Seminar

     Right after the start of the academic year, students are divided in small-number groups and take classes with exercise practices. Initially students improve their study skills and verbalization ability via training. Also education takes place to deeper understand our university as well as their career.

Academic Advisor System

     Advice and guidance is offered from the beginning of student' academic studies until graduation, in order for students to be able to learn systematically and independently. Individualized support is offered to support students with their future goals.

Using the Dormitory as an Educational Site
