In order to become internationally active, it is important to understand the way society works. To acquire systematic knowledge of social sciences, the curriculum of this course has been designed as follows:
(1) First and second-year students learn a social-scientific way of thinking, and acquire basic knowledge that is needed to develop expertise.
(2) Third and fourth-year students: develop from their basic knowledge a logical and practical knowledge of law, economics, and commerce.
