HOME > People > Course List > Historical Analysis

Economic history is an academic field in which we observe the historical changes in humanity's economic activity, and study developmental processes such as birth, growth, change and disappearance in various economic communities that have historically existed. The study of economic phenomena which have actually occurred in the past is extremely crucial for understanding the current economy. An introduction to economic history and four major subjects by periods and regions are provided, and therefore students can learn in a systematic manner about the long history of economic development in Japan and the Western world from medieval to modern periods. Moreover, students may also attend advanced classes on economic history.
