Seitoku University Junior College provides students with intensive yet
condensed training in a wide rangeof specialized skills that are readily
adaptable in society
The aim of a junior college is to provide career-essential skills and knowledge in a two-year period. However, it is not enough to simply arm students with specific skills and knowledge, then turn them out into the working world to learn how to apply and further develop them. The purpose of university study is to provide real-life practice and expose students to social morals, ethics and art, providing them with the foundation of a well-balanced adult.
Because of the academic subjects and the same Seitoku Gakuen educational spirit it has in common with the four-year university, the Junior College provides strong support for raising the skill level of each of its students. Small class sizes and in-depth instruction in a wide range of subjects ensure that graduates are knowledgeable and adaptable by the time they enter larger society.
