A new curriculum begins in AY 2017. In the Advanced Study of Arts and Design, students acquire the fundamentals by learning the mindset of designs that fuse science and art. By learning through lectures in three fields that constitute Arts and Design, seminars in subjects of each field, and project-based subjects that fuse the fields in order to identify themes in step with the times, students will enhance their knowledge base, art and design expertise, and conceptual power that transcends fields. Results of the research practices in the Master’s Degree Course will be compiled as Seminar in the form of a thesis or a piece of work. The curriculum structure allows the course completion to be shortened to one year. (Contact the Graduate School Office as there are requirements for the course completion to be shortened to one year.)
Individual research themes are investigated and researched, and through a series of creative practices, students deepen their awareness toward their theme, try several analytical methods, and cultivate the ability to expand on the knowledge they’ve obtained. Aside from the special research, students obtain necessary knowledge by choosing subjects from the Master’s Degree Course curriculum, and Subjects for Projects coordinated with the Research Organization will also support the research activities. Seminar is a subject that seeks creative and unique researches.
