Embrace the Challenge, Forge Your Strength
The more ambitious your goal, the stronger you must become to reach it.
How hard are you prepared to challenge yourself? How high can you push yourself?
The Faculty of International Social Sciences (ISS) offers you the chance to test your true value over the course of our four-year program.
You want to play a part on the stage of international business. But the road ahead is steep.
To make the grade, you must learn the value of challenging yourself.
We’re looking for people who are serious about taking on the world.
The ISS is a faculty established in 2016 with the aim of cultivating people capable of playing vital roles internationally. Adopting a social-sciences approach, students seek out issues in international society on their own initiative, collaborating and competing in English with people around the world. In this process, students develop problem-solving capabilities, which are the essence of an ISS education. If you have the mettle to face, address, and solve issues that confront international society today, we earnestly welcome you to join us at ISS.

Educational and Research Objectives
The core objective of the ISS is to cultivate people who can leverage an international outlook and broad perspective to play vital roles on the international business stage. Through a curriculum that fuses social sciences with language education, the ISS aims to develop the basic social-science skills needed to understand and investigate global issues and the communication nous to apply those skills in a global environment. In research, we seek to develop students’ ability to solve a host of problems by understanding, from a wide range of social-analytical perspectives, that differences between countries can give rise to enormous economic and social impacts.
