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.

Masters research/Publication of Master’s thesis

Presenting the results of IAMAS students’ master’s research and projects in photos and text, at the IAMAS Annual. We also publish a catalog of past master’s exhibitions in PDF format through IAMAS BOOKS.


Doctoral Program

As of 2021, we started our Doctoral Program. The program only allows 3 students per school year, with a 3-year limit of study. 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.
