advancement of technology, the world continues to change around us at a
dizzying speed. Surveying the world
around us, we see it growing and expanding before our eyes. The strength to comprehend such a world
naturally includes an ability to understand science and technology, but it also
must include the cultivation that comes from an all-round education.
We lead a life in
which we are constantly interacting with others who are different from
ourselves. In order to get by in the world today, we must be able to comprehend

Intercultural understanding, which is frequently spoken of, does not
constitute a complete and independent unit in itself; rather it is a premise
for how we interact with those in the world around us. It goes without saying that understanding
those around us is entirely dependent upon a deeper understanding of ourselves.
For these reasons,

education. Unless this cultivation is
done for the purpose of understanding the world and those around us, one will

practical use to society, it is also necessary to have the knowledge and skills
that are indispensable for each case.

to give students the knowledge and skills needed in their field of study. Through a broad and deep grounding in
educational fundamentals combined with cutting-edge specialist knowledge, graduates
from our college can look forward to a bright and appealing future. It is our desire that all who enter our
college will be able to make their dreams come true.
