About the Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences /Faculty of Agriculture At the Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences (GSALS):
We are committed to serving the global society through our education and research programs dedicated to the sustainable provision of food and ecosystem services. As one of Asia's leading agricultural schools, we take pride in the quality of our experienced and internationally recognized staff, who engage in innovative teaching and groundbreaking research.

About International Program in Agricultural Development Studies (IPADS):
Inaugurated in 2010/2011, the International Program in Agricultural Development Studies (IPADS) is an English-language MSc and PhD Program at the Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, the University of Tokyo.

Issue-oriented rather than methodology-oriented, this exciting international program offers its candidates the opportunity to develop the requisite expertise across discipline and country boundaries to tackle agricultural and environmental problems in developing countries around the world.

Graduates will be well-equipped to make a difference in the modern, globalized agriculture industry. The academic year at IPADS begins in October each year. Typically, students in MSc complete the coursework component of the program in their first six months while designing and preparing for their original research and then engage in full-time research.

Throughout the program, students are actively involved in the School's research community, participating in weekly seminars, thematic workshops, and academic conferences. Credit points for the research component of the program (8 credits for International Master's Research and four credits for IPADS Research Seminars) are awarded for these activities, which are designed to build a foundation to write a high-quality Master's thesis. With the program coordinator's prior approval, students can enroll in other subjects offered at the University in lieu of one or more of the subjects.
