Helping International Students Find English-Taught Undergraduate and Postgraduate Programs at Japanese Universities

Meiji University

Graduate School of Advanced Mathematical Sciences

Meiji Institute for Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences (MIMS Ph.D Program)

The education and research guidance at the Graduate School of Advanced Mathematical Sciences will be further evolved based on the achievement of the MIMS Ph. D. Program.
In the doctoral program curriculum, Project Study of Proposal Style of Mathematical Sciences I & II will be available in which students will choose research projects to plan and manage by themselves with the support and supervision of MIMS fellows. Moreover, “Project Based Analysis and Research Cluster” and “Inter-Departmental Course” at the Graduate School of Meiji University can be chosen as optional subjects for this course.
In the “Project Based Analysis and Research Cluster”, four subjects – Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences A&B, and Advanced Mathematical Sciences C&D – are provided, which are coordinated by MIMS fellows and research fellows. These subjects are taught in both English and Japanese together with the latest topics of mathematical sciences. The Inter-Departmental Course offer a number of “Multilingual Graduate Research”, such as “Fundamentals of Communication and Seminar Skills in English” and “Fundamentals of Academic Writing Techniques in English”. These subjects, which are taught by native English speaking professors specializing in academic English teaching, are aimed to cultivate highly skilled researchers who will be active worldwide.
Moreover, as an optional curriculum, students are encouraged to study at the graduate school of partner universities (Hiroshima University, Ryukoku University, Shizuoka University) where the credit transfer system and research guidance consignment agreements are available.
