Economics and Law Program

You will encounter various problems once you start working. If you become a government employee, you may be asked to create an economic revitalization policy for the municipality you are in charge of. If you become the employee of a privately-owned company, you may be required to check for any legal issues in new products. To handle these tasks and solve any issues, you need knowledge of economics and law.
The Economics and Law Program allows you to systematically acquire specialized knowledge in both economics and law, not only through lectures but also field work experience in self-directed studying and analysis of problems.
