[20 Oct & 17 Nov] Online Information Session for the International Peace and Co-existence Program

International Peace and Co-existence (IPC) Program at Hiroshima University

This cross-disciplinary program aims to consolidate students’ basic knowledge and to enhance their critical thinking skills in the academic disciplines of Peace Studies, Cultural Anthropology, International Relations, Law, Area Studies, and Memory Studies under the common key concept of “Peace and Co-existence.”

Students can choose a subject area and a specific topic to conduct independent research, with guidance from the academic staff who specialize in a variety of research fields, including nuclear damage, armed conflict, and the interrelations between development and culture. Other research interests include social inequalities stemming from issues of poverty, gender, ethnicity and religion as well as war and ethics, and security and nuclear weapons.

Inspired by Hiroshima, the city that has turned the devastation by an atomic bomb into aspirations for universal peace, this program welcomes students from a variety of backgrounds to maximize their potential and provides a unique opportunity to study complex social issues in a domestic and international sphere.

All lectures are conducted in English, but students can write their dissertations in either English or Japanese to submit for the degree of Master or PhD.
