Introduction

The Graduate Program in Economics has two objectives: to give students the skills needed to engage in independent research in the future, and to train professionals equipped with the knowledge to engage in highly specialized fields of work. Measures to achieve these goals include a diversity of classes, a separate admissions process for non-traditional students, and a selection of night classes. The curriculum is adjusted continuously in response to changing economic realities. In light of the trend toward computerization and other social transformations, recent resources have been devoted to the fields of information and public economics. Students may also take classes at eight affiliated universities. Here at Meiji Gakuin University, both lecture and seminar classes are intensive, providing an excellent setting for the study of advanced economic theory. Both Japan and other countries have faced many problems related to the economy and finance in recent years. Through the extensive application of theoretical, institutional, and historical knowledge, as well as through empirical analysis, students in the program develop the ability to understand these problems and come up with solutions. As a consequence, they also become capable of writing academic papers with real-world relevance. Phrased differently, the department is committed to nurturing our students' ability to recognize and solve problems not only through the application of knowledge but also by analyzing institutions and empirical evidence. The program is aimed both at fostering insightful scholars and educators with specialized as well as broad knowledge, and at contributing to the education of life-long learners and working students seeking to take the next step in their careers.
