Graduate - Division of Economics - Department of Economic History

Economic history is a research field that aims at obtaining deep understanding of the economy and society by exploring and examining past documents and data with relevant insights in the related areas including economics, sociology, politics and statistics. Whereas experimental economics has been developing in recent years, the objects to which the experimental approach is applicable are limited, and hence huge information recorded in the human history is still one of the most important bases for social sciences. The faculty in the economic history department are composed of experts on Japan, Asia and the West. Each of them keeps the discipline of historical research where induction based on historical documents and data is essential, while she/he values diverse and flexible thoughts as well as global and long-term perspectives.
