Overview

The Faculty of Policy Management and The Faculty of Environment and Information Studies were established at Shonan Fujisawa Campus in 1990. It shares a curriculum with the Faculty of Environment and Information Studies, which was established simultaneously at SFC. Students are free to take courses offered by either faculty.

Faculty of Policy Management

Thinking about the future; identifying problems and creating policies to solve them

At SFC, where delivers education and research to allow students to "think about the future", the Faculty of Policy Management is dedicated to pursuing scholarship aimed at "identifying and solving problems". The world is becoming more unstable. Existing solutions are not compatible with many of the issues which we now face, and such issues demand new ways of thinking. We must also question whether these issues are real problems in the first place. The study of "identifying problems and creating policy solutions" involves crossing the boundaries of academic discipline, emphasizing "practical knowledge" and cultivating the ability to create new knowledge that contributes to solving diverse problems that are difficult to tackle with a single academic field alone. We aim to train people who can accurately identify problems, propose solutions, and put them into practice, as well as those who pursue the truth and conceive new ideas to make Japan and the world a better place.

Faculty of Environment and Information Studies

Global leaders in the "Century of Environment and Information

The Faculty of Environment and Information Studies was established at Shonan Fujisawa Campus in 1990. We share a curriculum with the Faculty of Policy Management, allowing students at both faculties to freely take courses offered by either. The environment around us has undergone rapid changes in recent years, making predictions difficult and raising uncertainties for the future. This has brought about a situation referred to as VUCA (an acronym for volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity). The Faculty of Environment and Information Studies uses cutting-edge science, technology, and design--flexibly integrating them with humanities and social sciences--to understand the earth, nature, life, humans, and society, and to address unsolved issues and create solutions. Through cross-disciplinary learning, we nurture leaders who respond to change, and survive and defy uncertainty to create the future.
