Toyo University Faculty of Economics Grading & Evaluation Criteria

Comprehensive evaluation of students’ performance will be performed through scheduled exams (midterm and final exams), short tests, in-class reports, class attendance, homework, and out-of-class reports; it will be based on attitude and participation in class.

Three Policies of the Department of International Economics

Admissions Policy

Amid the rapid expansion and advancement of globalization, the Department of International Economics strives to provide education that nurtures students who are proficient in liberal arts, confident in employing the foundational theories of economics and international economics, possess broad insights into global economics and society, and have the ability to demonstrate specialized knowledge while being actively engaged in societies inside and outside of Japan. To that end, the department seeks students with basic capabilities in these areas, in addition to a desire to nurture and develop those capabilities.

In other words, we seek to enroll

1.  Students with a strong awareness of issues in global economics and society, in addition to communication skills in foreign language(s) such as English;

2.  Students with intense curiosity about real-world economic and social occurrences and who satisfy the requirements of minimum level of mathematical thinking skills;

3.  Students with broad intellectual interest in society, history, culture, and the like inside Japan and around the world.

Based on this perspective, the department’s general entrance exam consists of questions focusing on fundamental skills in Japanese language arts, English, social studies, and mathematics. In particular, the exam emphasizes English ability, which is a central pillar for global communication, and heavily weights English questions in several of its sections.

Furthermore, the examination for candidates who are recommended by their senior high school principals contains short essays and an interview, which assess applicants’ command of the Japanese language, their reasoning abilities, and their awareness of social issues. International students are also welcomed into the department, and a predetermined number of places are specifically allotted for students in this category.

Curriculum Policy

The curriculum aims at fostering human resources who have the capacity to be active on the stage of international economics and society. The curriculum is structured on the basis of the following four foundations.

1.  Specialized subjects are emphasized from a practical, hands-on perspective, and focus is placed on fostering the ability to identify and solve problems. To that end, this approach starts with imparting an understanding of real-world economic issues and various case studies, followed by theory-based learning.

2.  Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of global communication skills. To acquire these skills, English classes are required from the first to the third year, while German, French, and Chinese are offered as electives through the second year. Classes are organized so that students can develop practical language ability throughout their four-year period of study.

3.  In the first year, classes aimed at boosting students’ skills related to economic data and information analysis are offered to help them gain the ability to respond to an environment in which information freely flows across national borders via IT networks.

4.  As a way of facilitating students’ smooth transition from high school to the university, ongoing guidance and specialized instruction are offered in small groups until students graduate. Specifically, this instruction takes the form of a foundational seminar class in the first year, which helps students acquire the requisite academic skills for university study, followed by further seminar classes from the second year, which hone those initial skills.

Diploma Policy

The Department of International Economics awards undergraduate degrees to students who meet the following requirements.

1.  Students who understand the fundamental theories of economics and international economics, who have acquired broad-based knowledge regarding international economics and society, and who are able to exercise judgment and take action from an international perspective.
