Center for Continuing Education

The Center for Continuing Education at Toyo Eiwa University offers a wide array of courses in five categories: "Literature and Culture," "Languages," "Music and Art," "Sports and Fitness," and "Childrearing Network." These courses are an extension of the curriculum offered in the two faculties of the university. In addition, several of the courses in the regular university curriculum are also open to those enrolled in the Center. The number of such courses has increased over the years, and the very positive response to these courses reflects their high academic quality and standard. Courses are offered both at the undergraduate campus in Yokohama and also at the graduate school campus located in the heart of Tokyo in Roppongi. Our goal is to maintain a high standard of academic quality and to respond to the various needs and interests of an ever-widening audience of women and men in our immediate community and neighboring areas who wish to engage in further learning.

Toyo Eiwa Counseling and Psychotherapy Center

Toyo Eiwa Counseling and Psychotherapy Center is located at our Roppongi Campus and offers services to the general public. We have interview rooms and play rooms, so counseling is provided for all individuals. The center also serves as the training institute for Graduate School's Program in Clinical Psychology. Students provide consultation services, working under the guidance of professors and other specialists. Our methods include psychotherapy, play therapy and sandplay therapy. Psychological assessment is also conducted as necessary.

Institute for Life and Death Studies

Toyo Eiwa University was established in 1989, and when it started its graduate program in human sciences in 1993, it set up a post for a faculty member who specializes in the study of life and death. In 2003, an affiliated research institute, the Institute for Life and Death Studies, was established. Since then, the Institute has organized several series of open lectures to the public every year, and in addition, starting in 2005, it has published its Annuals through the publishing house, Lithon

Institute of Early Childhood Education and Care (The Center for Children and Their Families)

The Institute of Early Childhood Education and Care, known as "The Center for Children and Their Families" was established in 2007 so as to serve the local community and society in promoting high-quality practice and teacher education programs based upon the spirit of Christianity which has endured over 100 years at Toyo Eiwa. The mission of the Center is to offer both practical service and research to improve practice and inform theory in child and family development and care.

Institute of Media and Communication Studies

Contemporary society has been rapidly changed by evolving Computer- Mediated Communication (CMC). Online public opinion and online stock trading influence current political and economic mechanisms. Moreover, family life and interpersonal relationships are changing, too. At this Institute, the rapid change in contemporary society brought on by the new media environment is considered from the perspectives of the humanities and social sciences. Furthermore, the Institute aims to contribute to research and education concerning media and communications.

Institute of Applied Human and Social Sciences

The core of our study field is RISTEX, a gigantic research project initiated by Ministry of Education, Government of Japan, in 2000, and refers to application of human and social sciences to traditional areas of natural and technological sciences. Professors. Yoichiro Murakami and Koichi Okamoto, our former university president and research head, have based their studies on this national project.
The research interest at our institute covers (a) psychological intervention into PTSD, (b) corporate climate relevant to risk management, (c) IT-assisted educational methods, (d) decision-making under conflicts, and (e) risk research. RISTEX donated a huge amount of risk literature to this institute in 2006. Making it available to researchers in and outside Toyo Eiwa is another important mission of ours, as the size and quality of our literature is unrivaled in Japan.
