Message from the Dean

Dear Prospective Students and Families:


Programs in English at Komaba (PEAK) at the University of Tokyo, our first undergraduate degree program conducted in a language other than Japanese, was established in October 2012. Since then, many talented students have flown high to the world stage.

In this program, students receive all of their education in English from 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.

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.
