Welcome to the Center for International Collaboration and Advanced Studies in Primatology (CICASP)

The Primate Research Institute (PRI) of Kyoto University founded the Center for International Collaboration and Advanced Studies in Primatology (CICASP) on April 1st, 2009. Through CICASP, PRI promotes international collaboration in research and education, focusing on the primate mind, body, ecology, conservation, and genome in order to understand the evolutionary origins of human nature. CICASP provides the necessary window for international students to study primatology and wildlife research at the prestigious Kyoto University.

The graduate program in Primatology and Wildlife Research focuses on the study of non-human primates and other wild animals to promote their conservation, health and welfare, and advance our understanding of wildlife and human nature. Graduate students enroll in either the MSc or PhD course with one of the existing sections at PRI or the Wildlife Research Center (WRC). Both degrees are research-focused, but Master’s students are also required to complete a set of courses and training programs in English.
