  • Faculty of Humanities

    The Faculty of Humanities was established in 1990 the year the university program started. The Faculty’s fundamental educational philosophy is for students to acquire the ability to meet both the cultural and social challenges that characterize the present era. To help achieve this aim, students will be exposed to, and conduct research based on, an education rooted in the humanities. The Faculty, furthermore, aims to meet the needs of contemporary society by nurturing students to achieve an understanding that is both wide and deep. The Faculty consists of three departments; the Department of Contemporary Culture, the Department of Literary Arts, and the Department of Media and Communication. All the departments aim to create self-directed, lifelong learners who can identify problems, think, and judge on their own.

    Department of Contemporary

    Students in the Department of Contemporary Culture examine culture holistically and from multiple perspectives. By doing so, they become self-directed individuals who can help solve the problems besetting society. Through extensive cultural studies, students will acquire a wide range of knowledge regarding the relationships that exist between the past and present and between communities. And based on this knowledge, students will become aware of and think deeply about social problems and search for ways to solve them. Though the study of culture is divided broadly into the culture of tourism, the intercultural exchange, and Japanese culture, they actually overlap and intersect in many ways. Because of this overlap, students in fact acquire a broad outlook even when their studies focus on a particular cultural theme. The department aims to cultivate students who through their studies of culture can succeed and flourish in what they do, irrespective of their career choice or social context.

    Department of Literary Arts

    The Department of Literary Arts aims to cultivate students to be citizens of the world who are competent in both Japanese and English. This is a liberal arts course that aims to nurture independent students who can adapt flexibly to changes. We use literature and movies to teach students to be fluent in both Japanese and English and promote their ability to think.? The educational opportunities include many fieldwork study options. The department provides each student with an iPad mini for use while they are at school.? They learn how to collect, organize and communicate information using both analog tools (textbooks) and digital tools (applications).
    The course features a junior year graduation thesis followed by a senior year presentation.
    During the junior year, students will be expected to complete a graduation thesis which can be used during job application.? As seniors, they produce a wide range of cultural and artistic artifacts for the public that reflects what they have learned.

    Contributing to the local people and community
    Students put their creativity to use at “Ijikaru Studio” located in the Ijiri shopping area.

    Department of Media and Communication

    The Department of Media and Communication offers students a flexible program in the fields of media studies, communication, and design. Students are encouraged to become media literate in order to better understand the complex messages we receive from television, radio, the Internet, print media, billboards, music, as well as verbal and non-verbal forms of communication. It promotes ‘hands on’ learning through field work and workshop courses, as well as theoretical courses in design theory, chromatics, media history, and popular music.

    Faculty of Human Relations

    In the Faculty of Human Relations students learn what human relations really ought to be, by putting the focus on Human Relations, which form the foundation of social life in the activities of humans living in the here and now, and by looking upon the body and mind from a variety of perspectives. Furthermore, the faculty aims to educate women who possess initiative, women who can contribute to society both as members of society, by supporting and being supported, and independent women who can play an active part in international society. In order to foster the knowledge needed for this, we have established two departments: the Psychology Department, in which students study Social Psychology, Interpersonal Relations Psychology, and Clinical Psychology; and the Department of Early Childhood Development, connecting the study of children, including Developmental Psychology, Principles of Childcare, and the theory of support for child raising with practical aspects of the caring for, and the education of children. In addition, we have made arrangements to allow students from both departments to gain a broad education by taking common courses offered by the Faculty of Human Relations in Cultural Anthropology, Christian Literature, Philosophy, and so on.

    Department of Psychology

    The purpose of the Department of Psychology, with its systematic and broad learning of psychology and peripheral fields, is to nurture human resources which can continue to develop of their own accord and thrive in a changing society. The systematic curriculum includes three majors: Clinical Psychology, which attempts to comprehend the workings of the mind in a person’s growth and life activities; Career Psychology, which studies the human relations within groups and organizations and attempts to predict the actions of others; and Educational Psychology, which fosters the ability to gain a fundamental understanding of psychology throughout one’s life. At the Department of Psychology, we make every effort to develop practical education which places importance upon the connection with the world outside of school, not only to support the ability to assist in a variety of fields such as education, medicine, and welfare, but also to promote women in society who have acquired the ability to be involved with others, the ability to comprehend the essence of a matter, and the ability to make the most of relationships, all of which are considered necessary in a wide variety of fields involving human relations, from ordinary companies to social life.

    Department of Early Childhood Development

     

    In the Department of Early Childhood Development, we aim to cultivate kindergarten, nursery school and elementary school teachers who can come into contact with, and give abundant and loving care to, children through the acquisition of nursery school and educational techniques, by understanding child development and understanding humans with a broad education originating in the systematic learning of the study of children, based on the teachings of Christ and Psychology. We also train teachers of special education and educators who support the will to live with a rich and giving heart. In fact, we contemplate what kind of existence children have from an interdisciplinary perspective rooted in the study of children. In addition to in-class studies, practical training is conducted at actual kindergartens, nursery schools and elementary schools to prepare future kindergarten, nursery, and elementary school teachers. We make every effort to educate human resources with a high level training who can support not only children, but the parents who raise them as well as the humanity and ability to support them.

    Faculty of International Career Development

    The Faculty of International Career Development was established in 2014 to help cultivate global citizens. The faculty consists of the Department of English as a Global Language and the Department of International Career Development. Besides cultivating global citizens, the faculty aims to nurture future female leaders. Because this school is a women’s college, the latter aim is of utmost importance.

    The faculty’s mission is to cultivate global citizens.

    • 1. We will cultivate women leaders.
      Women entering the workforce as equals is highly desirable. We need more women who can fulfill the role of a leader. The lack of enough female leaders in the West is a problem that is often identified. Being a tertiary institution for women, we take this problem seriously.
    • 2. Our aim is for students to get TOEIC scores above 730.
      Advanced knowledge of English is indispensable in the world of business. Most companies require 730 points in TOEIC for their employees to work abroad. We aim to realize this end by regularly administrating TOEIC IP tests before graduation and through individualized instruction.
    • 3. Nurturing critical thinkers
      The workplace needs employees who have the knowledge and skills that can be put to effective use. We aim to build the ability to think critically through internships, the study abroad program, and specialized classes. We also seek to instill within students the willingness to tackle questions without answers and the ability to discern what is important from what isn’t.
    • 4. International corporations and career support
      Many companies conduct business around the world. The faculty has devised a list of international corporations and offers career support to students by meeting their individual needs from the moment they enter the university. During the four years at university, students get ongoing support and advice from their teachers. The school has established a network where students who graduate can receive continual support.
    • 5. Cultivating global citizens
      To nourish advanced knowledge of English and critical thinking, students need to be exposed to educators with professional expertise and sound and effective pedagogy. The Department of English as a Global Language with its 10-year-history has been building the pedagogy and resources to fulfill this aim.
    • 6. The department’s three specialized areas
      The Department of English as a Global Language’s areas of specialization: International relations, English Education, English linguistics. The Department of International Career Development’s areas of specialization: International business, Intercultural Communication, Area Studies/international cooperation
    Department of English as a Global Language

    The Department of English as a Global Language consists of three areas of specialization: international exchange, English education, and English linguistics. In the field of international exchange, a variety of issues are examined, ranging from international goodwill to international relations, whereby students acquire the ability to accurately analyze contemporary world affairs. In the field of English education, the department aims to foster professional educators who are equipped with practical instructional knowledge and the ability to meet the needs of students ranging from elementary school to high school. In the field of English linguistics, a wide range of subjects - from introductory to highly specialized courses- are offered to help instill within students the knowledge and understanding necessary for entering the field of education or to continue their studies at the post-grad level.

    Junior College

    Many people express a desire to speak English fluently. But why exactly do they want to do so? What do they hope to do after they have mastered English? At Fukuoka Jo Gakuin University Junior College students learn to look upon themselves and to imagine the kind of person they want to become. Students acquire not only practical English ability but also the knowledge and skills that will be demanded by society in the future. At the Junior College, we educate cosmopolitan women who can understand and, be considerate towards, others in culture and society.

    English Department

    By learning English as a tool of communication, students refine their ability to communicate in English in the manner demanded by modern society. By making use of that English communication ability, students acquire the specialized knowledge and culture through four courses* that are related to their future career paths after graduation. Not only do students gain the knowledge demanded by the airline industry or obtain the qualifications needed to be a tour conductor, they are also able to look objectively at their career choices while at the same time acquiring a fundamental, yet broad education. The Junior College endeavors to educate women who will play an active part in society.

    • Four Courses*
    • ・English Immersion Course
    • ・Academic Intensive Course
    • ・Media English course
    • ・Airline Tourism Course

    Graduate School

    The Master’s Degree Program in Humanities was established at Fukuoka Jo Gakuin University in April of 2003. Opening the Graduate School had been a long-cherished dream from the very beginning when the Faculty of Humanities was founded in 1990 and when the Faculties of Human Relations completed its first full year since opening in 1999. The Graduate School, founded upon Fukuoka Jo Gakuin’s educational philosophy, which is based on Christianity and holds humans in the highest regard, aims to educate women who can grapple with the internal and external challenges facing modern society. To meet this goal, the Graduate School is divided into three areas of specialization: Comparative Culture, Clinical Psychology, and Development Science on Education. Those who complete the coursework can earn one of the following three degrees: MA in Comparative Culture, MA in Psychology, and MA in Developmental Pedagogy.

    Comparative Culture

    In addition to conducting comparative studies of the world’s languages, literature, and thought, the Comparative Culture Major aims to train human resources who are equipped with a broad internationally minded perspective and a high level of specialized knowledge and who can successfully cope in an international setting. In order to achieve this goal, we have set the following three basic policies for our research instruction.

    1. Support a deep insight into each individual’s field of specialty while at the same time maintaining a broad perspective.

    2. Research is conducted based on each student’s specialty with emphasis placed upon its relationship with other fields of studies.

    3. Communication ability is developed in order to cultivate foresightedness and a superior international sensibility.

    Based on these policies, the subjects studied include basic subjects (Intercultural Exchange, Japanese Language Studies, English Language Studies, etc.), core subjects (Comparative Culture Studies) and related subjects. Related courses include Type I (Japanese Literature, Chinese Literature, Ancient Civilizations, Folklore, etc.) and Type II (English Language, Literature from the English speaking world, British-American Thought, etc.)

    Clinical Psychology

    The chief objective of the Clinical Psychology Major is to train open-minded specialists who, having completed the academic work related to clinical psychology, can support the heart and mind of others. As the Master’s Program has been certified as a Type 1 Designated Training University by the Foundation of the Japanese Certification Board for Clinical Psychologists, students are able to take the licensing exam to become a clinical psychologist immediately upon graduation. The program has already produced over 100 clinical psychologists.

    The objective of the curriculum is help students acquire the learning and technical ability connected to clinical psychology through a group of subjects which emphasize practical training. Students gain the technical ability to conduct psychotherapy which they will use as psychological counselors through not only clinical psychological interviews but also by learning the fundamentals of a therapist’s attitude and perspective and by deepening their understanding of the characteristics and outcomes of various types of psychotherapy. Moreover, in psychological assessment, along with systematically learning about theory and technic, we introduce a supervisory system to provide students with the opportunity to acquire advanced techniques. With the training in clinical psychology fundamentals and by using a variety of teaching techniques, such as roleplay, work, group sharing and so on, students are coached at the university’s Clinical Psychology Center and educated on how to prepare themselves for work as clinical psychologists. Finally, in Practical Training in Clinical Psychology students are trained in the art of diagnosis. In addition to this, students take part in the “Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami Relief” and “Special Needs Educational Supporter Training” to gain hands-on experience.

    Development Science on Education

    In 2015, Fukuoka Jo Gakuin University’s Faculty of Humanities established the Master’s Program in Development Science on Education.

    In cooperation with the Faculty of Human Relations and the Department of Early Childhood Development, the Development Science on Education Master’s Program seeks to train specialists in education and research who can bring out a child’s rich and expressive mind and the courage to live. The central academic concept of the research and education which is conducted in this program is the establishment of a correct outlook on children and the science to deal with developmental crises. We have compiled a systematic course of study, at the core of which are three fields of study: Pedagogy, Psychology, and Special Needs Education. We seek to raise children and youths with the individuality and imagination to enable them to thrive in the new age. From a perspective that is not bound to existing domains or values, we promote the dynamism of child development: diversity, individuality, and creativity. We never tire of looking for even better methods of training and study to support children’s development. We devote ourselves to the hard study into the systematization and construction of developmental pedagogy.

    Students enrolled in the Development Science on Education Master’s Program aim to acquire the MA in Developmental Pedagogy, the first such degree offered in Japan, and to pursue developmental pedagogy while making the most of their diverse experiences and learning. Our students include not only those who have graduated from the University’s Department of Early Childhood Development, but also child caregivers and teachers, who have worked in nursery school and other school settings, special education teachers, school nurses and international students, as well as members of society who take part in the long-term study program while they work, and those actively pursuing research. Because of this, the research activities and classes, guidance in crafting a graduation thesis, and so on, are catered to the individual circumstances of each graduate student.
