Diploma Policy

Based on the Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences' founding principles, our goal is to educate high-level creators who create new forms of culture with scientific techniques and a philosophical and ideological perspective. Within our curriculum organized to fulfill this purpose, students must pass a final thesis or final thesis and project examination along with a final examination in addition to completing a designated number of credits in order to receive their graduate diploma. At that time examiners will address the following:

  • Did the student demonstrate high-level thinking skills and a strong sense of responsibility, achieving a result that addressed modern social problems and contributed to the happiness of future generations?
  • Could the student actively engage with others specializing in various fields regardless of their research area to acquire new forms of knowledge borne from those interactions?
