Graduate School of Regional Policy Admission Policy

Experiencing a declining birthrate and aging of its population, Japan today needs to reform its regional society and economy. To realize such reforms, we need to nurture individuals who can play a leading role in regional society with an ability to foresee the future.

TCUE's Graduate School of Regional Policy aims to cultivate human resources who have advanced policy-making ability as well as to contribute to improvement and development of regional administration, economy and culture, through implementation of continuing education for working members of society and collaboration with other research institutes to perform the duties of a public university.
Our master's course aims to nurture professionals with policy-making ability and researchers with highly specialized knowledge by providing logical studies of regional policy in our educational frame composed of the following five research fields: "urban and rural areas," "industries and business administration," "administration and politics," "environment, human beings and welfare" and "culture." Our doctoral course aims to cultivate top-quality researchers and highly specialized professionals through a well-established study of regional policy.
