Three major emphasis areas
The graduate program in Health and Nursing Sciences is divided into three emphasis areas. Although each area specializes in different aspects of health and nursing sciences, they also coordinate with each other to take advantage of all available resources.
Research methods and design are included in each of these three emphasis areas, so regardless of which area students choose to go into, they will all have the opportunity to develop their ability to think logically and critically and to clearly express their ideas.
Health Science Emphasis
The main goal of this program is to examine health-related issues from the physical, psychological, and social aspects, and encourage the students to pursue the academic study of related fields. Graduates of schools other than nursing schools are granted admission only to this program.
Fundamental Nursing Emphasis
The main goal of this program is to train students to become professional practitioners, researchers, and educators in various specialized fields that are related to health and nursing sciences.
Quality of Life and Community Health Emphasis
The main goal of this program is to train health professionals who will promote the health of people at home, in the community, and in the workplace.
