The Course-by-Course Education Program (hereafter called "the Program") is provided jointly by the School of Physical Sciences and the School of High Energy Accelerator Science. It seeks to foster researchers in the field of physical sciences who are fully equipped with a high degree of professional qualities as well as broad perspective and international competence, in order to meet the needs of society. In the 1st and 2nd years of the 5-year doctoral course, the Program emphasizes general science education that featured the theme of "science and society", and recommends students to take common subjects which are relevant to all departments. At the same time, the program offers its original subject, so called "Special Study on Physical Sciences". In the 3rd to 5th years of the 5-years doctoral course, the program focuses on research work. During the dissertation phase, the student completes one of the four specific courses. The dissertation phase is designed to give researchers an international perspective by encouraging and supporting participation in internships and participation in international research conferences. https://www.soken.ac.jp/en/outline/education/interdep_program/course_by_course/
