Division of Economics for Well-being

Students in this Division pursue economic analysis for social welfare, and learn to use the methodology of economics to probe problems relating to daily life. In particular, they study ways of managing and improving human life. The course includes fundamental life economics and the management of the quality of life as a part of the human environment and well-being. These curriculums are based on an understanding of labor and consumer economics, national economy, and current theories of economics. There are numerous elective subjects for living theory in the curriculum: home management, life materials, living environment, time use for living, consumer issues, life security, and so on.
