 The "Welfare Co-creation Management Course" is the first course in Japan for childcare / welfare facilities, health care / welfare managers, and managers (leaders).Over the next 25 years, the number of elderly people with diverse needs for medical care and welfare will increase by 300 million nationwide, of which 7% is said to be concentrated in the Tokyo area.Against the background of the expected long-term increase in medical and nursing care facilities, this course includes the "Childcare and Welfare Facility Management Graduate School Program" to develop management personnel who will be responsible for the management of childcare and welfare facilities, as well as welfare studies, sociology, and management. Establish a "Health and Welfare Management Graduate Program" to train managers and managers of health and welfare with high comprehensive practical ability by learning knowledge and practical scientific research methods such as scholarship and pedagogy.

 The "Consumer-Oriented Management Course" is the first graduate school of consumption and management in Japan.In a new consumer society where consideration for society, the region, and the environment is indispensable, we will work on creating new value and develop human resources who will be responsible for planning, planning, and promotion of companies and organizations.Upon completion of this graduate school, you will be able to obtain a master's degree as well as a "master consumer affairs advisor" qualification.

 The "1 year course" is a step-up course for curators with practical experience, and those who aim to become curators or teachers in the future.Study the culture and life of each region and era from history, folklore, human geography, archeology, art history, cultural property studies, etc.By taking a course at the National Institute of Japanese Literature while attending school, you will be able to obtain the "Associate Archivist Qualification" certified by Showa Women's University, and you will be able to strengthen your ability to handle records management related to documents and cultural properties.There are also opportunities for hands-on experience such as field trips at museums in Boston and Washington DC, and practical training at the Koyo Museum.
