The Faculty of Global Human Sciences was established in April 2017, combining the Faculty of Intercultural Studies and the Faculty of Human Development. This new Faculty aims to foster graduates with a deep level of human understanding and empathy who can solve issues on a global scale and contribute to the realization of a global inclusive society.

To achieve this, the Faculty is implementing a special education program, the Global Studies Program: GSP. In this practical education program all students take part in overseas study and fieldwork, learning about global issues through practical experiences. 

The Faculty of Global Human Sciences consists of the following four departments, which foster practical problem-solving abilities rooted in a broad range of expert knowledge. The Department of Global Cultures aims to solve issues relating to multicultural situations, cultural exchange and cultural conflict; the Department of Human Development and Community seeks to understand aspects of human development and consider the nature of the communities that support us; the Department of Environment and Sustainability looks at the creation and preservation of an environment that supports inclusive societies; and the Department of Child Education trains leadership for the next generation toward a global inclusive society.
