Intensive Course for Persons with Work Experience

This course is designed for people who have achievements in producing artworks or social activities, or who are involved in pioneering research and development in the working world. On the premise that these achievements will be used as the basis for research at IAMAS, this course is designed to condense the normally two-year master’s program into a one-year curriculum. For more information, please refer to “About the Intensive Course for Persons with Work Experience”.


Doctoral Program

As of 2021 we started our Doctoral Program. The program only allows 3 students per school year, and the term of study is 3 years. The goal of the program is to lead society through research that attempts to theorize and systematize media creation in a practical way. IAMAS is a public school of Gifu Prefecture, and has taken advantage of its status as a public school to work in cooperation with the local community and incorporate media creation into the curriculum.

In order to provide students with an opportunity to receive advice on their own research plan with the faculty member they wish to have as their research advisor, we hold a “Pre-Enrollment Research Consultation” prior to enrolment in this program. For more information, please refer to the “Application Guidelines for the Doctoral Program.”
