Education and Research Outline
In the Master’s degree program, students focus on artistic expressions in their chosen field. At the doctorate level, students are expected to further their level of specialization in each field, placing greater emphasis on cross-departmental and theoretical education and research.
For this reason, the doctoral course is not divided into several departments as in the master’s course, but functions as a single program under the rubric, “Comprehensive Design and Arts”.
