It is vitally important that creative solutions be found to the complex problems that are affecting the world’s cities (including Tokyo), such as the need to maintain and improve the urban environment, issues relating to the aging of the population, healthcare and welfare provision, industrial development, disaster prevention and recovery, and ensuring that diverse groups of people are able to live in harmony with one another. To this end, there is a real need for planning capabilities that reflect both a global perspective and a regional perspective, that are able to outline a clear picture of what urban society and urban spaces should look like, and that are able to formulate suitable policies for implementing these plans in collaboration with ordinary citizens. The Department of Urban Science and Policy has a curriculum tailored to address these key issues relating to urban development, and is designed to help students cultivate the planning capabilities needed to create the new-generation cities of the future.
