Message from Dean of Regional Development Studies


Toyo University is one of largest private universities in Japan, and was founded in 1887 as a School of Philosophy (Tetsugakukan) by renown philosopher, Dr. Enryo Inoue. It was reorganized in 1906 and from that time has been known as Toyo University. With a long history of academia, the university has grown over many years, and currently Toyo University has around 28,000 students in eleven undergraduate programs and ten graduate school programs.

The Faculty of Regional Development Studies was established in 1997 under the theme “regional development” to meet the needs of an ever-changing society. Within the faculty are two undergraduate Departments: the Department of Regional Development Studies and the Department of International Tourism Studies. There is also a graduate school in Regional Development Studies.

The objectives of the faculty are: to develop human resources for building communities, to revitalize regional activities, and to improve global tourism. Educational programs offer students opportunities to take part in various kinds of field-work and internships abroad as well as in Japan. Faculty students are expected to go on to make contributions in a range of diversified fields for community development.

The faculty has around 1800 students, including 180 students from foreign countries who help to make a small international community.

As a Dean of the Faculty, I sincerely welcome applicants to enter our departments and to share in the development of our future in a global society.
