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 Mathematical Sciences Program offers interdisciplinary education and research that integrates the arts and sciences under the aegis of "mathematical sciences that communicate with and contribute to society." The Program elucidates complex systems extant in nature, society, and living things by using cutting-edge science and mathematics with the aim of improving the welfare of humankind through practical applications. Guided by this principle, the program develops professionals who can work globally, with a broad and high-level grounding in both science and mathematics, and thus liaise among various disciplines to construct a bridge between mathematics and other sciences.
