Message from the Dean

Dear Prospective Students and Families:

Dean

 Welcome to the website for PEAK, the two new undergraduate degree programs that the University of Tokyo launched in the fall of 2012.

Two New Degrees

 Founded on our rich and vibrant academic community, "Todai, Komaba" (as the University of Tokyo, Komaba Campus is often referred to in Japanese) launched two new undergraduate B.A. degree programs, the 'International Program on Japan in East Asia' and the 'International Program on Environmental Sciences', in October 2012.

The courses have English as the medium of instruction. Students do not need to be proficient in the Japanese language to enroll for these degrees. Intensive Japanese language classes are offered, especially during the first two years, so that students also have the opportunity to enhance their Japanese-language skills.

Graduating students are able to apply for further study at the University of Tokyo's various graduate schools including those at Komaba.

An Introduction to "Todai, Komaba"

 The University of Tokyo is widely regarded as Japan's premier academic institution and one of the best in Asia. The College of Arts and Sciences, located on the Komaba Campus in the heart of Tokyo, provides liberal arts education (junior division courses) to all the first and second-year students, totaling approximately 6000 students. It also provides senior division courses for third and fourth-year students who are seeking Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Liberal Arts.

 Todai, Komaba, is also home to the University of Tokyo's undergraduate student exchange program known as "Abroad In Komaba" (AIKOM). International students from about thirty leading universities on all five continents come to study at Komaba. The students of the College of Arts and Sciences, in return, are selected to study at those partner schools for a year and may transfer the credits they earned abroad back to Komaba.

 Studying at the University of Tokyo will provide you with the academic skills you need in order to play an active role in the forefront of 'globalization' in the 21st century.

 As you browse through the website, we hope that you will find the information useful, and that you will consider taking the opportunity to join our lively academic community at Komaba.

 All of us at Todai, Komaba, are looking forward to welcoming you.

Professor of Chemistry
