Additional Information 《Voice of Students》
Though founded on Christian principles, ICU's graduate school is an excellent place to explore universal values that transcend the cultures of individual nations. As ICU was founded just after World War II by American and Japanese people who wished for world peace, ICU's peace-oriented academic tradition naturally becomes a part of each individual's research, through communication with fellow students and faculty.
