The Graduate School of Advanced Integrated Studies in Human Survivability (GSAIS) offers a degree program that seamlessly combines master’s and doctoral programs and covers a colorful array of areas of expertise. The program involves active collaboration with businesses, government agencies, and partner universities. By assembling leading instructors and students from Japan and abroad, the GSAIS will guide talented students to become leaders who, equipped with a broad perspective and originality, are ready to take on global challenges in their area of specialization, whether it be related to the private, public, or academic sectors. We aim to produce graduates who are capable of assuming responsibility as global leaders, combining a wide range of knowledge, high degree of expertise, flexible thinking, and practical skills with a high sense of mission and an ethical perspective.
Noteworthy features of the GSAIS include: (i) Lectures on integrated studies on human survivability and leadership training programs which help students develop a broad spectrum of knowledge and on-site problem solving capabilities, (ii) A one-year international internship during the program’s 4th year, which enables students to develop the diverse abilities required to operate internationally, and (iii) Project-based research during the 5th year, in which students plan and carry out their own projects involving various resources in Japan and abroad.
