Faculty of Economics, Takasaki City University of Economics
Curriculum Policy


The Faculty of Economics educates students placing emphasis on practical sciences, based on Takasaki City's tradition as a prosperous commercial city. By cultivating a broad academic base through adequate instruction based on the teaching staff's superior research results, we aim to nurture students to become a future workforce capable of holding their own in various international, domestic and regional subjects in the fields of economics and general business administration.


1. The Faculty strives to provide a curriculum of basic subjects necessary for students in the first year to establish a solid foundation to acquire specialized knowledge as well as the foreign languages necessary to respond to globalization, placing an emphasis on liberal arts as the core of education to nurture students' intelligence, covering a wide range of fields and foster a well-rounded character.


2. The Faculty aims to cultivate human resources who can follow the rapid development and changes of today's society with their deep insight, by enhancing their knowledge and ability in specialized fields through specialized subjects in the Departments of Economics and Business Management.


3. The Faculty requires all students in this faculty to participate in a seminar, a small-sized class of a specialized subject to provide academic knowledge and strengthen their expertise. Seminars are composed of three phases: Basic Seminar, Seminar I and Seminar II. Seminars also provide opportunities to develop students' communication ability through presentations and discussions.


4. The Faculty arranges special lectures such as lectures by working professionals in our curriculum so that students can learn practical knowledge from people outside the university and develop their ability to respond flexibly to today's rapidly changing social conditions.


5. The Faculty allows its students to study courses in TCUE's Faculty of Regional Policy, other universities within Gunma Prefecture and universities in foreign countries with which TCUE maintains a foreign exchange partnership program, in order to provide a broad range of study opportunities in diverse environments, so that students may cultivate a diverse set of values and a broader perspective.
