Faculty of Regional Studies
Studying in the Faculty of Regional Studies
The local community is the space in which we live. Diverse and complex challenges exist there. Meeting those challenges requires the ability to assess conditions comprehensively by learning multiple disciplines.
In the Faculty of Regional Studies (FoReSt), students can study geography, earth science, ecology, sociology, social welfare studies, pedagogy, economics, business administration, politics, and social anthropology. The strong point of the Faculty is that it covers widely various disciples, which is indeed appropriate for a “Forest of Academic.”
The forests of learning at FoReSt are not limited to classroom settings. Through various fieldwork activities, students connect with many people in the local community, consider solutions together, and collaborate. In doing so, they aim to create a local community better for all the people and their future.
