To help resolve the increasingly complex issues on the international scene, the Graduate School of Regional Development Studies offers two programs: Regional Development Studies and International Tourism. The Regional Development Studies Program is extended to prospective experts and leaders interested in planning sustainable regional development and community participation. The International Tourism Program is designed to foster highly-skilled professionals to be engaged in tourism development on a global level. In both programs, the Graduate School devotes its efforts to field research activities and the education of students from all over the world within a passionate learning atmosphere where some of the classes are taught entirely in English.

|Additional Information||Our program aims to contribute to the capacity building of foreign students who will lead their countries in terms of sustainable development. As the program wishes to accept distinguished students from as many countries as possible, it created a special course for the convenience of English-speaking students. As the research work in the course may involve field-work, students with prior work experience are most welcome. Our special course is the English track of the program, in which all the required credits can be obtained through attending lectures offered in English. Even a foreign student with no knowledge of Japanese language can get master degrees from the graduate school following the supervision of the teaching staff.|
