The Department of Social Work was established in 2000 when Nagasaki International University was founded. During the 20 years since then, many students graduated from the Department and have been playing an active role as competent social workers in communities.

In society, there are people who currently have difficulties in their lives or who feel it is difficult to live. In order to make the lives of these people happy, support from people around them is required, and such support sometimes requires expert knowledge. Some expert knowledge and skills are needed to consider what problems a person has that make it difficult to live, what causes the problems, and what kind of support is needed to solve the problems and to help solve these issues and the problems found. Technically, it is the expert knowledge and skills of social welfare.

The Department of Social Work offers a curriculum that enables students to acquire accurate specialized knowledge and skills of social welfare from the basics. Based on hospitality, the founding spirit of Nagasaki International University, the Department offers a place of meaningful learning that aims to develop specialists who can support people’s daily lives, communities, and society at large.

The Department of Social Work, where such learning is practiced, has three things that we can be proud of.

The first is caring faculty members filled with hospitality. Specialists in different disciplines who have gathered to put the learning of social welfare into practice support the studies and university lives of students from admission to graduation.

The second is our students who chose the Department with lofty and compassionate aspirations to learn social welfare to take good care of their families and improve society for the better. Students in the Department learn with keen interest and aim to become social welfare specialists while supporting and encouraging one another every day.

The third is the close and friendly relationships between faculty members and students. There is a trusting and comfortable environment where students can casually talk to and consult with faculty members about almost anything.

Let’s learn and grow together in this ideal study environment.
We at the Department of Social Work welcome you with open arms.
