Special Minor Programs were established in Shimane University by organizing the class subjects systematically. The objective of Special Minor Program of Geopark is human resources development who have a knowledge of diverse region heritages and can support regional revitalization using Geopark with interdisciplinary perspective.
We have three class subjects, specializing in Geopark, named “Introduction to the Geopark”, “Elements of the Geopark”, and “Practice in Geopark”. The goals and objectives of “Introduction to the Geopark” are as follows.
i) understand basic concept of Geopark
ii) understand regional resources, such as geology, geography, and history
iii) understand the relationship between regional tradition and culture and climate
iv) understand the maintenance and utilization of natural resources
Students attending these lectures are increasing yearly, so these lectures contribute to the understanding of students about Geopark.
We will present university education by Special Minor Program of Geopark in Shimane University.
