Last Updated: , Committee for Education and Student Affairs

The Graduate School of International Development (GSID) has three departments (Department of International Development, Department of International Cooperation Studies, and Department of International Communication), each of which is organized into 5 - 6 disciplinary units. On this organizational basis, it has carried out education and research in international development, international cooperation, and international understanding. However, now in the 21st century, as development issues became increasingly diverse, multilayered, and interdisciplinary, GSID must adapt its curriculum to flexibly accommodate these changes in the field. GSID must also respond to the widespread call for services to educate both professionals and researchers in international development and cooperation and international communication, fields with a strong practical bent. To meet these needs, GSID introduces new curriculum for Master's Program this year.

There are two key features of the new curriculum: 1. The Department of International Development (DID) and the Department of International Cooperation Studies (DICOS) will integrate their subject offerings to provide an interdisciplinary development studies course, International Development and Cooperation, with six specialized programs. Thus, the GSID education will comprise two courses: International Development and Cooperation, and International Communication, administered by the Department of International Communication (DICOM). 2. The two courses will approach education in the framework of these programs to meet their respective educational objectives and prospective graduate profiles. -This course structure will allow students to address current issues crossing the boundaries of existing disciplinary units.

The former faculty members of DICOM became a part of the Graduate School of Humanities in April 2017. (It still offers education to those enrolled in DICOM-programs.)
