Graduate Programs

Our two-year Masters program combines credits earned from courses and a graduation thesis. Students choose courses from across the university curriculum to learn the theories, methods and skills necessary to carry out their research projects. We admit about 20 students to the Masters program each year.


While Masters theses can be written in English, and some lectures and seminars are in English or bilingual, the Masters course requires the ability to communicate in Japanese. Hence, detailed information about the program is provided in Japanese only.


Our three-year PhD program centers on the doctoral thesis, which is written under the supervision of at least two professors. We admit a small number of students (there is a soft limit of six) to the PhD program each year. Read more about entrance to the PhD program here.
