Revelation of the realities of information society

From body gestures and hand gestures in the ancient times to communications through highly developed contemporary information media, the study subjects covered by this Area are complex and diverse. Whilst the word of “communication” itself has multiple possible meanings, Area of Media Communication and Information Society Studies leads you to make diagnosis of the realities of information society, on the basis of social sciences and humanities approaches, referring to the words of “information”, “media”, “mass communication”, “journalism”, and “mass society” as the key words, and then, with respect to the issues presented, find the path and the ways to look into the issues. We very much look forward to meeting with incoming students with high intellectual curiosity.

There should not be virtually any one day during which you are entirely cut off from media. There are certain perspectives and ways unique to Media Communication and Information Society Studies, to correctly read and deal with such contemporary information society. Students get to learn those through attendance to lectures such as “Introduction to Communication and Culture” and “Visual Culture” as well as subjects for a small number of attendees such as “Seminar in Communication Theory” and “Seminar in Communications and Society”. We are aware that students are under tight time schedules every day because their time is spent not only for studying but also for club activities and part-time work. Notwithstanding such daily cycles from the morning to the night, we hope that students maintain high levels of interests in the realities and the society. It is to be always remembered is that after all what you work on are the issues that are now actually arising in the society.
