The specialization in social welfare offers various relevant subjects for the purpose of creating human resources that meet society’s expectations. Not only do students learn social welfare theories, but they also are provided with plenty of opportunities to learn through volunteering and practical training at places such as social welfare institutes. Students can also carry out in-depth discussions and research with one another through seminars and other activities.

Moreover, students consider the state of social welfare from a wide range of international perspectives through overseas social welfare training.
