Department of Geography and Regional Environment

About us

Department of Geography and Regional Environment covers not only conventional human geography and physical geography, but also incorporates resolutions of local/regional environmental issues. Our interests do not include global scale issues like global warming. We treat local issues like environments and their transformations of spatial organizations closely related with our everyday life.

We offer various kinds of lectures and practice courses: many fields of human and physical geography such as regional geography, economic geography, historical geography, rural geography, and regional environment systems; tourism; local culture; area management; NPO activity; environmental ecology; geographic information systems, and surveying. In addition, through the regional environment course, surveyor-assistant qualification is acquirable.
