Message from the Dean of the Faculty of Environment and Information Studies

Develop a modern creative mind

Dean WakitaIf design is medicine, art is a poison. Design is necessary for us to solve problems and maintain a safe, convenient, and healthy life, yet at the same time we long for things that can excite and even harm us. In this way, discovering problems and then examining them through art has allowed us to continually question the nature of humanity.

If science is modesty, technology is desire. Science brings us face-to-face with the wisdom of nature, teaching us to be content with what we have and broadening our perspective. On the other hand, people have the desire to rise up and improve themselves, and technology will always help them achieve this.

To be creative in the modern world demands that one freely makes use of design, art, science, and technology, and the Faculty of Environment and Information Studies is one of the few places in the world where you can learn all of these things in an interdisciplinary and practical way.
