Graduate School of Arts
Tokyo Polytechnic University's Graduate School of Arts aims at the systemization and theoretical construction of all diverse aspects of media art beyond the undergraduate level. In order to achieve this, instead of creating seven different departments corresponding to seven departments of our Faculty of Arts, we establish a single department under the title of media art to cover the fields of photographic media, imaging media, design media, digital media, animation media, game media, and art studies.
We have also lowered the walls between these fields to make students to easily take courses of other fields. This interdisciplinary approach of education and research enables us to train future media artists and researchers possessing a comprehensive viewpoint with highly specialized knowledge and techniques of media art.
Since existing media art scenes are always seeking new innovations, we are quite sure that our graduates can play important roles in media art with their own creativities cultivated by our education.
