The Global Studies Initiative - World-leading Innovative Graduate Study Program (GSI-WINGS) is a part of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the University of Tokyo. In this unique 5-year integrated graduate program linking master’s and doctoral courses, students acquire a deep understanding of diverse languages, cultures, and regions through advanced interdisciplinary study of the humanities and social sciences. The program aims to foster “knowledge professionals” with leadership skills who will be able to bring diverse sectors of society together to tackle the challenges of the globalized world.
Students in the program focus on one of four major areas: global communication, global history, global governance, and global ethics. The curriculum takes full advantage of the international research and educational opportunities offered by the graduate school.
