Department of Regional Economics and Environmental Policy

Approaching the community and environment from an economic perspective!

We aim to foster human resources that can contribute to local communities by blending both the regional economy that explores regional economic issues, and environmental policies that create environmental conditions desirable to human society. We also strive to deepen understanding of environmental conservation, and the utilization and state of resources, based on the science of economics.

We offer a diverse curriculum based on the fundamentals of economics, and enhanced foreign language and information-related education by

  • helping students search for career paths through the free and flexible selection of subjects,

  • fostering broad and profound perspectives on approaching the local economy and environmental economy,
  • utilizing practical subjects that address internationalization and computerization,
  • offering subjects that assist in acquiring qualifications, and
  • aiming to enhance education and research through collaboration with the Graduate School of Regional Business and Economics.
