About Programs for Leading Graduate Schools

The Programs for Leading Graduate Students, in addition to the traditional education and research required in order to obtain a doctorate degree in one's respective field, have students engage in scholarship from a wider, comprehensive viewpoint, and take part in colorful coursework through a new class style involving activities such as Project Based Learning, which expands through involvement with society. By acquiring the creativity that allows them to thrive in society, we aim to education not just researchers, but human resources that can act as leaders in society on an international scale.
