International Program in Agricultural Development Studies (IPADS) is an English-language MSc and PhD Program, sole 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 and skills across discipline and country boundaries to tackle agricultural and environmental problems in developing countries around the globe. Graduates will be well-equipped to make a difference in the modern, globalized industry of agriculture and contribute to the sustainable provision of food and ecosystem services in the world.

The academic year at IPADS begins in September each year. Typically, students in MSc complete the coursework component of the program in their first six months whilst designing and preparing for their original research, and then engage in full-time research for the remaining 18 months. 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 4 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 above subjects.

IPADS MSc Program is a two-year coursework and research program towards the University of Tokyo’s MSc (Agricultural Sciences) degree. To graduate, students must satisfactorily gain 30 credit points from the subject list below (courses in 2016) and pass the defense of their Master’s thesis. Subjects with are compulsory. Subjects with + are semi-compulsory (i.e. at least one of them has to be completed before submission of the Master’s thesis).
