The Graduate School of Media and Governance was established at Keio University SFC in 1994. Its master's program imparts knowledge to students in advanced areas and sends them into society as skilled professionals. Students are then able to use their knowledge and skills to identify and resolve social problems. In the doctoral program, students use advanced technology to conduct research in different fields and go on to become international researchers, educators, or specialists. Its curriculum focuses on active student participation in need-based social projects. At the Graduate School of Media and Governance, research and education in the fields of policy, organization, environment, media, biological science and social innovation are covered by eight Programs. Each Program consists of a number of projects that correspond to specific research themes. The projects are connected to social needs and problem resolution through a cross-fertilization of ideas.
