Features of the Curriculum
The Graduate School of Economics offers courses in three research areas: economic systems, environmental systems, and regional systems. Each course covers a wide range of specialist subjects designed to foster students’ academic abilities. Students will be able to perform independent research activities as either an academic researcher or a highly skilled professional. In addition, the courses provide a rich foundation of learning upon which to base these abilities. Students can take classes from each of the three courses and others to form a comprehensive Program and plan research activities that fit with their individual research goals. There are also lectures and seminars for smaller numbers of students designed to improve the thinking skills and judgement needed to structure their Master’s thesis. Thesis writing is supported through research guidance seminars led by the student’s academic supervisor. Students can also take language courses as free credits with the aim of deepening exposure to and exchange with other cultures as well as enhancing global learning.
