Master’s Program to Foster Leading Moderators for Co-creating Regional Development and Indonesia Linkage Master's Degree Program: Welcoming Fall 2021 New Students
The Graduate School of Policy Science cordially welcomes Fall 2021 new students!
They include the first cohort of students enrolled in the Master’s Program to Foster Leading Moderators for Co-creating Regional Development and the transfer students from the Indonesia Linkage Master's Degree Program of the Ministry of National Development Planning, Indonesia.
Entrance ceremony and orientation for these students have been held in-person in combination with online on September 24 and 25.
The Master’s Program to Foster Leading Moderators for Co-creating Regional Development is a newly established English-taught educational program, which fuses academic and scientific research theory with practical knowledge based on participatory research performed in actual policymaking contexts. One of the unique aspects of the program is the central role played by the participatory research, in which graduate students spend a predetermined amount of time conducting on-site work on intrinsic policymaking issues faced by local governments or NPOs in Japan.
The program was adopted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) as one of “The International Priority Graduate Programs (PGP)–Advanced Graduate Courses for International Students-” in 2020. Selected students from overseas, especially from (but not limited to) Southeast Asian countries, are awarded Japanese Government (MEXT) University Recommendation Scholarship. The next application (Fall 2022 Enrollment) will be open in December 2021.
