Currently, there are two different courses of study available, which are “The International Program on Japan in East Asia” and “The International Program on Environmental Sciences”. Both of these programs are interdisciplinary degree programs consisting of two years of liberal arts study in the Junior Division and two years of specialization in the Senior Division. In this program, all of the courses available as part of these programs are delivered entirely in English by PEAK faculty members who are making great efforts to broaden and enrich their approaches to both teaching and content for PEAK classes. They strive to instill in PEAK students not only the long fostered UTokyo’s liberal arts education to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the world’s complex reality, but also the global communication abilities and the imagination necessary to comprehend fully the many problems facing human society across the globe. There is no Japanese language requirement to join either of the programs, but studying Japanese is an important part of the program and Japanese language classes are mandatory during the junior division for both programs. While PEAK is a small program that selects only a few new excellent students each year, we believe it is undoubtedly one of UTokyo’s most important endeavors.
