The International Course in Primatology and Wildlife Research is a graduate program of Kyoto University that focuses on the study of non-human primates and other wild animals to promote their conservation, health and welfare, and to advance our understanding of wildlife and human nature. Graduate students enroll in either the MSc or DSc course with one of the participating departments at Kyoto University's Center for the Evolutionary Origins of Human Behavior (Inuyama), Wildilfe Research Center (Inuyama campus or Kyoto), Center for Ecological Research (Inuyama campus) or Kyoto University Muyseum (Inuyama campus). Both degrees offered are research-focused, but Master's students are also required to complete a set of courses and training programs as part of the curriculum. Students who have successfully completed their Master's degrees typically progress to the DSc program.
These MSc and DSc programs are recommended for anyone wishing to study primatology and/or wildlife research.
