Program for comprehensive study of economics.
For the Comprehensive Economics Program, students will gain practical research ability in economics by studying the subjects that all students are required to take while selecting the primary and secondary fields of studies from the 5 areas of “theories,” “policies and applications,” “inter-civic,” “history and thoughts,” and “international” according to the individual research theme to provide systematic subject studying.
Jointly offered with the Graduate Schools of Law and Intercultural Communication.
This is a master’s program targeted at the study of the Asia and Africa regions. Students will study about modern society, in particular, about Asian and African society from the “international” viewpoint based on the relations between different nations and from those of “inter-civic” relations based on human relations.
The Comprehensive Economics Program offers course work and research work. Course work focuses on solidifying theoretical studies and fostering the ability to apply them through a systematic curriculum. Classes consist of lectures, practicum, reports, and exams, and the low faculty and student ratio allows dedicated instruction. As a proof of mastering the course work, students can obtain the Master’s degree (in Economics) by submitting their completed project-oriented research.
Research work aims at solidifying academic knowledge and conducting original research. Based on the course work, students will compile and submit their Master’s thesis. Unlike project-oriented research, a research thesis with academic creativity is required. By completing the research work, students can obtain the Master’s degree (in Economics) and advance to the Doctoral Program by passing the entrance examination.
The Doctoral Degree Program aims to educate scholars who can conduct independent research activities based on in-depth knowledge and advanced research ability developed through the Master’s Program. For this reason, the program is designed to foster advanced research ability and abundant academic knowledge as the foundation for research and to train and educate researchers and professionals who can conduct global-level creative research.
