Features

Point 1
Learning to make use of information and to disseminate and present information

The rapidly diversifying information society requires its members to have the ability to read, understand and use information disseminated by various media, and the ability not only to send information out but also to find an appropriate angle to convey the nature of the information. The Department of Information and Media offers four areas of study: Media Design, Media Communication, Media Technology, and Media Producing. In addition to gaining specialized knowledge, students also learn to be proactive, to think things through, and to cooperate with others in solving problems—all skills that are required in society.

Point 2
Cultivating information professionals of vast knowledge

The department aims to cultivate information professionals who have wide knowledge and practical media skills and who make full use of such skills in hopes of realizing an ideal society. Beginning with learning the basics of the four areas of study in the first year, students go on to select classes in their field of interest from the second year on, developing expertise through video and web production, analysis of mass media, participation in the planning and management of an event or new product, and so on. Students then present their work at the examination exhibition and poster session in the latter half of the third year and proceed with a major production or research project in the fourth year, aiming for professional expertise.

Point 3
Rich study environment with state-of-the-art facilities and workshops

With the aim to nurture professionals proficient in the latest technology, our seminar rooms are fully equipped with the tools necessary for acquiring basic skills as well as creating multimedia contents. We also provide various facilities and systems to support students' creative activities, including workshops where students can learn techniques from leading creators and a media support center (MSC) where they can consult with fulltime advisors specializing in video, computer graphics, and other fields. We are also actively involved in various projects such as industry-government-academia collaboration projects and gallery exhibitions organized by students.
