A comprehensive economics faculty offering 17 courses in 5 departments - among the largest at a national university
Contents under this page
One of the largest faculties of its kind at national universities in Japan, the Faculty of Economics offers interdisciplinary, all-round education and research, each department complementing the others while maintaining its own specialization and academic system. Supported by a teaching staff of over 70, the flexible educational structure allows students to focus on work in their own departments while giving them the freedom to study in fields outside their major discipline. Two programs (night/day) are available for the convenience of housewives and people with full-time jobs.
Liberal Arts Classes
Introductory Studies, General Liberal Arts Courses, and Foreign Languages, and Physical Education. Through links with the Faculty of Education, students are encouraged to cultivate a rich personality, acquire broad knowledge, and develop communication skills in areas like foreign languages and information processing.
In 2017, the curriculum underwent a major revision in which a three-tier structure was established, consisting of Introduction (relay lectures, etc.), Core (faculty core courses), and Application (allowing students to take academic major courses of the other faculty), meeting both the specialized and interdisciplinary requirements of students.
Small-group seminars are offered throughout the four years of the program. These are grouped into Introductory Seminars, Preliminary Seminars, and Seminars in Academic Major, to locate and develop individual students' diverse talents.
