Message to students

Welcome to the Faculty of International Liberal Arts (FILA) at Soka University. Based on 25 years of experience in education in Japan and the United States, I hope to bring a comparative approach to the FILA program, focusing on my field of inquiry in education and sociology. We welcome all students who are ready to meet the challenge of this demanding yet exciting English-only program. We look forward to seeing you at Soka University.
