The Graduate School of Media and Governance at the Keio University International Center encourages students to take part in fieldwork to conduct surveys and research based on their individual research themes inside or outside Japan, or apply for internships where they can use their research findings in a hands-on situation. 


Students in the Media and Governance programme at the Keio University International Center are required to submit an application and obtain approval from the University prior to conducting the activity, after which they can earn credits if they are approved.

Note*: Certificate: In addition to the Master’s Degree, students can earn a Certificate of Program or Course Completion by fulfilling specific requirements. The certificate will be signed by the Dean of the Graduate School and demonstrates the student’s expertise in the corresponding field.
