The Department of Public and Regional Economics was established in 2008 as a new department, with the aim of proposing designs for a "new socioeconomic system" of a public nature. Today, as industrialization progresses, its negative aspects are also increasing, such as poverty, regional disparities and environmental disruption. This is proof that the current socioeconomic system is not functioning properly.
Based on the idea that, both the national government and regional governments need to act in tandem when creating economic policy, we offer a unique course of study that strives to create a society that benefits all citizens. The curriculum is divided into the Public Course and the Regional Course, where the former is the search for resolutions to various issues mainly on the side of the government (national government and local governments), while the latter is the search for improvement measures on the side of regions or local communities (such as local NPO activities). Under a semester system that facilitates active learning, we provide many practical training courses (e.g. utilization of GIS) so that students may undergo empirical learning.
