At the Graduate School of Economics, a first part (master's course) and second part (doctoral course) of the doctoral course have been established, and researchers from various fields in economics educate and instruct students on a nearly one-to-one basis. We are targeting students who would like to pursue further education or research in highly advanced and specialized theory and applied areas of economics. In fiscal 2008, we established the Department of Public and Regional Economics in addition to the Department of Economics. The system now includes two departments, and so we have expanded our areas of research and education. The Graduate School of Economics welcomes those who are interested in creating a better socioeconomic system.
The Department of Economics is divided into the master's course (M.A.) and the doctoral (Ph.D.) course. Both allow students to conduct research on theory and applied areas of economics. During the M.A., students accrue knowledge from a wide perspective and nurture abilities necessary for conducting research on economics or pursuing professional occupations. In the doctoral course, students nurture their ability and the knowledge necessary for conducting advanced research activities in the field of economics.
In today's socioeconomy, there are growing issues that cannot be resolved based on current market and governmental frameworks alone. In order to resolve these issues, it is important to carry out policy at the local level, such as in local communities.The Department of Public and Regional Economics bases its foundation on economics and aims to bring about a better public society in order to respond to the needs for social innovation. Students will design an economic system that better suits the needs of a new era and learn about and conduct research on the management and governance of local areas and communities. At the same time, we train researchers to manage and evaluate planning policies as experts in regional development and the management of non-profit organizations.
