University Career Design Policy


To students

At Showa Women's University, we aim to help our students develop the ability to design their career while enrolled in school, so that after graduation they can find a job that suits them and lead an independent life as a member of society or a professional. We have formulated a career design policy (policy regarding social and occupational independence) and are promoting career education.
A “career” does not stop at finding a job after graduation. “Career design” is the process of planning how you want to live your long life, with your occupation/employment at the center of it.

Showa Women's University Career Design Policy

Showa Women's University Career Design Policy and Career Subject System

Career design policy (policy regarding social and occupational independence)

  1. Through study and practice at our university, students will hone their professional awareness and views on continued employment and re-employment, and develop career design skills to design their own lifestyle over the long term.
  2. Based on the department's ``career design policy,'' students systematically take ``specialized education subjects'' to develop professionals who can become socially independent in their professions and employment fields, making use of their characteristics.
  3. We aim to develop human resources who will acquire an international perspective, rich education, and professional ethics, and who will be able to lead a gender-equal society in the 21st century as independent human beings.
