Regarding Submission of Application for the Doctoral Degree

For the application procedure regarding the establishment of an Academic Degree Evaluation Committee, Please refer to the "Degree acquisition process and implementation guidelines" and the "Appendix 1 Administrative proceedings" under the Doctoral Degree Acquisition Guideline for Faculty Members.





Graduate School Seminar

Research Progress (Optional)

When students get a rough idea of where their research theme and methods are heading, they may give an optional Research Progress presentation at the Graduate School Seminar. This allows students to obtain advice and comments from faculty members and other doctoral students in order to benefit their research. The presentation lasts approximately 30 minutes, including time for a question-and-answer session.

Thesis Proposal

Doctoral Program students may move on to the Thesis Proposal at the Graduate School Seminar if they have satisfied the academic requirements specified in Item 8 and completed the Teaching Experience in Item 9 (or expect to complete in the semester in which the Thesis Proposal is to be held), are more or less decided on their research themes and methodology, and have roughly completed the preliminary investigation on related research. This gives students an opportunity to obtain advice from various faculty members, and be evaluated to become a Doctoral Candidate. The second or third semester (including the first semester of enrollment) is recommended for those with the prospect of acquiring the Doctoral Degree in three years. The presentation lasts approximately 35 minutes (25 minutes for presentation, 10 minutes for question-and-answer session).

Thesis Progress (Optional)

After passing the Thesis Proposal and having fulfilled the academic requirements, the student has the option to present their Doctoral Thesis in the Graduate School Seminar. This allows them to receive advice from faculty members and other doctoral students before the establishment of the Academic Degree Evaluation Committee, which will help them toward earning their degree. The length of the presentation is approximately 60 minutes, including time for Q&A (35 minutes for presentation, 25 minutes for question-and-answer session).

Dissertation Hearing

After the establishment of the Academic Degree Evaluation Committee, a Dissertation Hearing will be held and evaluated in the Graduate School Seminar. If the student passes the Dissertation Hearing and it is approved by the Graduate School Committee, they will take the Final Examination, and apply for their degree once they have passed it. If the student fails the Dissertation Hearing, they may give another presentation in subsequent semesters. The Dissertation Hearing lasts approximately 60 minutes (35 minutes for presentation, 25 minutes for question-and-answer session).


*For more information about application etc, please refer to the Guidebook.



White List

What is White List?
The White List is a list of recognized international conferences at which doctoral candidates may give a presentation as a lead presenter for it to count as one of the two or more original, peer-reviewed papers in Requirement 1 (Graduate School Guide 2019, Requirements for Applying for the Doctoral Degree and Requirements for the Doctoral Degree)

*The student must present as a lead presenter in the "3. Applicable Period" and "4. Applicable Session Format" on the White List. 
*Students who wish for a presentation they gave at a conference on the White List to count toward the requirement should first consult with their Main and Co-research Advisors, and then propose it during their Dissertation Hearing.
*Papers presented at conferences on the White List to count as one of the two or more original, peer-reviewed papers cannot also count toward the other presentation requirement in Requirement 1.
