Program Overview

Program Description:
Globalization and the heavy urban concentration of the population and industry in Japan have resulted in the dissolution of the welfare state. To cope with this, the revival of local self-governing bodies and regional communities has become one of the most significant issues we face today in Japan. In this department, we aim to train students who have the perspective and methods to consider regional communities, who are capable of deepening the awareness of various problems, and who are also capable of conducting independent research and presenting an image of how regional communities should be. This course is also ideal for retraining local government employees and planners who wish to further enhance their knowledge of technical theory and methodology.
