- Creativity and Humanity
We develop highly creative human resources endowed with a spirit of respect for others and a yearning for peace
To produce graduates with the ability to respond to rapidly changing trends in society, it is essential to nourish a rich humanity and keen intelligence, based on a spirit of respect for others and the pursuit of peace. Under this philosophy, we combine a well-rounded liberal arts education and a more specialized education to provide a broad range of courses in areas such as economics, international relations, information systems, nursing, and nutrition, thereby producing highly creative specialized professionals who are rich in creativity and equipped with deep insight and high powers of action, enabling accurate accommodation of needs in an increasingly complex and diverse society. We also train students in advanced levels of international communication, with an emphasis on English and Chinese language education, and strive to cultivate individuals who can contribute to the advancement of Asia and the world in general while taking a hand in the development of globalizing societies and regions. On the level of graduate studies, our efforts are devoted to raising the degree of expertise even higher and turning out people possessed of a broad outlook and highly specialized knowledge, capable of pursuing careers as experts in individual areas of specialization.
- Regional Innovation
We create new ideas through research rooted in Nagasaki
With the conviction that studies should be undertaken toward the goals of assuring respect for humanity, world peace and human welfare, the University constantly strives to refine the methods and substance of research, probe for truth, and create knowledge. We intend to actively promote distinctive research grounded in the geographical, historical, and cultural attributes of Nagasaki, which include many islands and diverse sea areas; historical, including a long history of exchange with other parts of East Asia; and cultural attributes of Nagasaki in order to create additional knowledge rooted in the region. In particular, the university places a priority on research related to matters such as human safety/security and peace, remote islands, and East Asia, in keeping with its intention to function as a hub of knowledge not only in prefectural and national contexts but also in international ones.
- Contribution to Society
We contribute to the local community and to international society based on the University’s total capability
Through comprehensive application of the university's available human, material, and intellectual resources and organizations, the university is committed to extensive contribution to the improvement of the health and well-being of local residents, the promotion of local industries, and the creation of new local culture. To this end, we as a local center of knowledge will actively promote collaboration between industry, academia, and government. We also pursue partnership and cooperation with the community for flexible and positive-minded accommodation of the diversified needs of prefectural residents in such respects as lifelong learning and community development. Nagasaki was for a long time Japan's sole window to the West and to East Asia, and has a history of dealings with other countries, as well as human and cultural ties to the rest of nearby East Asia. The university will make the most of these historical and geographical characteristics of Nagasaki by vigorously developing interaction with overseas universities and research institutions, mainly in East Asia, and by assisting international economic advancement and cultural enhancement.
