The University of Tokyo's Programs in English at Komaba (PEAK) seeks to admit a select number of students who exhibit the potential for intellectual growth and leadership, and can contribute to the diversification of the campus with their cultural and educational backgrounds, in line with the university's initiative to establish a global campus and nurture global leaders.
PEAK consists of the "International Program on Japan in East Asia" and the "International Program on Environmental Sciences." The aim of these undergraduate degree programs is to share the rich intellectual and educational resources of the university with the wider global community. The classes will be taught in English, but students will also have an opportunity to learn the Japanese language during their studies.
Students in the "Japan in East Asia" program will gain an international and interdisciplinary understanding of East Asia's past, present and future with a particular focus on Japan. The program encourages students to develop skills and knowledge in order to foster constructive dialogue within East Asia and around the world. Students are expected to actively engage with the educational and cultural environment at the university.
Students accepted to the "Environmental Sciences" program will study this complex multidisciplinary subject from many different viewpoints including environmental and economic policy, ethics and jurisprudence. They will also learn about biodiversity conservation, geochemical cycling, geophysics and the latest environmental technologies from an advanced science and engineering perspective. The primary aim of the program is to nurture well-rounded environmental specialists who can design and implement integrated approaches to current and future environmental issues.
