1) Educational Goals

The goals of the Toyo University Graduate School of Information Sciences and Arts are as follows:

1. To develop highly professional human resources with world-class expertise, through a combination of the new field of information sciences and arts, which integrates diverse fields into one with a common language of “information”; highly specialized knowledge and skills of the most advanced information and communication technology (ICT); and our educational method for motivating students to continue improving their behavioral traits.

2.  To provide our students with opportunities for education and research, aiming to enable them to acquire:

  • The ability to be a pioneer in the field of information sciences and arts;
  • The ability to apply ICT to various fields;
  • The ability to take the initiative in discovering problems, and exercise their own leadership to tackle those problems; and
  • The ability to live and cooperate harmoniously with diverse people in the international community, based on deep respect for diverse cultures.

3.  To produce a wide range of leading specialists, mainly including IT engineers, IT managers, planners and government workers, who can demonstrate their excellent performance at IT companies (such as software and data processing companies) and IT user companies of various business types in different industries, including the service, manufacturing, and logistics industries, and governments and public agencies.

2) Policy Overview

Admissions Policy

Based on the purposes of its establishment, its education philosophy, and its goals, the Graduate School of Information Sciences and Arts look forward to welcoming our school’s new students as follows:

  • Students who hope to improve themselves as persons through the process of applying their expertise in information processing to finding solutions to actual problems;
  • Students who hope to work globally by applying information processing technology, based on their already achieved high English proficiency enabling them to explain their own research field;
  • Students who hope to engage in more practical activities by making the best use of their already acquired knowledge of multiple information-related fields;
  • Students who hope to establish the academic field of information sciences and arts, and make the best use of it for other diverse fields.

Curriculum Policy

To achieve the aforementioned educational goals, the Graduate School of Information Sciences and Arts will develop a curriculum according to the following policies.

  1. In the major domains developing information sciences and arts, we will develop interdisciplinary courses that will enable students to deeply explore the meanings of information for future global society, and will pave the way toward the integration of different disciplines from the perspective of information and the creation of a new perspective toward contemporary society.
  2. In common domains, we will offer both courses for acquiring a high level of information processing ability and the most advanced ICT skills, and courses that enable students to use their acquired abilities and skills to engage in practical activities, in order to facilitate a closer integration with related disciplines.
  3. In research instruction courses, we will give students instruction in writing and presenting academic papers in English to develop their practical English proficiency, with the aim of developing globally effective human resources with high research abilities.

 

Diploma Policy

The Graduate School of Information Sciences and Arts will award a Master’s degree (in information sciences) to students who have acquired the following kinds of expertise and abilities:

  1. A high level of interdisciplinary specialized expertise in any of “system informatics,” “media informatics,” or “psychobiological informatics,” required to fully develop information sciences and arts;
  2. The most advanced ICT skills, and the ability to use them to engage in practical activities in society;
  3. The ability to pursue research, and logically explain research results, and the ability to write academic papers that are academically significant, innovative, creative, and applicable; and
