Master's Program

In modern society with its social and economic changes and the wide use of technologies, different complex and intertwined cross-cutting issues emerge. These issues occur on the small scales of individual and family to the large scales of the company, regional society, city, nation, and world. Therefore, to maintain a sustainable society, the public requires resolutions to social issues in a cross-cutting, comprehensive manner that is often outside the conventional approach of a specific area of expertise. The Graduate School of Environmental and Information Studies aims to develop global citizens who can address such issues by nurturing concrete awareness of the diverse issues related to the environment, information, and urban life. Thus, we seek students who can share the following with us.

  1. Empathy for our educational philosophy and goals
  2. Awareness of the issues facing a modern society
  3. Global, future-oriented, and academic viewpoints
  4. Willingness to address issues in a practical manner
  5. Ability to communicate with others
  6. Ethics possessed as human beings

Doctoral Program

While recent technological development has promoted urbanization and a highly advanced information society, it causes issues related to the human environment across diverse areas of business and society overseas around the world. Environment and information related fields are broad and related to a diversity of conventional academic fields. To resolve the issues for enriching and developing human society, there is need to develop solutions via research from interdisciplinary views in a cross-cutting manner that goes beyond the conventional stove-piped study system. The doctoral program in the Graduate School of Environmental and Information Studies seeks students with a clear awareness of the issues faced by modern society who are willing to cultivate new study fields in order to address issues related to the environment and information that we need to resolve in order to maintain a sustainable society.
