Graduate School of Global and Regional Studies

The 21st century has seen some striking cases of economic development, particularly in Asia and Africa. On the other hand, conflict and poverty still prevails in the present world. Under such changes, relations between developed and developing countries are gradually shifting away from that of unilateral assistance to that of mutual cooperation. As the world undergoes dynamic changes and diversification of relationships in this way, the Course of Regional Development Studies welcomes students who intend to address various regional challenges through their involvement in the field.

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.
