The Master in Information, Technology, and Society in Asia at The University of Tokyo is tailored to both international and Japanese students who are motivated to pursue active professional careers on the regional and global stages. All instruction is in English, so proficiency in Japanese is not a prerequisite.
The University of Tokyo, also known as "Todai" was established in 1877 as the first national university in Japan. As a leading research university, Todai offers courses in essentially all academic disciplines at both undergraduate and graduate levels and conducts research across the full spectrum of academic activity.
