Important urban elements are classified into six categories: 1) the natural environment, 2) humans, 3) materials, 4) energy, 5) information, and 6) man-made structures such as buildings and automobiles. The main themes are: humans and nature in the Division of Geography, nature and artificial structures in the Division of Civil and Environmental Engineering, humans, information, and artificial structures in the Division of Architecture and Urban Studies, materials and energy in the Division of Applied Chemistry, and nature, humans, and information in the Division of Nature- and Culture-based Tourism. Students conduct specialized research on these relationships of the themes with environmental problems. The emphasis for junior students is on learning the basic methodologies in each subject as well as problem-solving. Senior students further develop their skills by problem identification-style learning through their graduation research projects.
