  • 1. Overview

     The Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences covers an extremely broad range of research fields. We study all ecosystems - the arable land, forests, and aquatic environments occupied by living organisms. The scope of our research ranges from the molecular/cellular level to the individual organism level and from the ecosystem to the entire global scale. We also follow a sociological approach to the relationship between nature and human activities. Our research activities focus on the relationship between human beings, living organisms, and the environment studied on a global scale from various viewpoints. While it goes without saying that scientific pursuits will further enrich the store of knowledge, the fruits of our research will directly lead to the betterment and prosperity of humanity. The most pressing concern in the first half of this century, which affects the entire world, is a shift towards a sustainable society. Our mission is to contribute everything we can towards resolving this problem. Our efforts are aimed at scientific advancement in the fields of food production, environment, and life sciences, and educating individuals who will contribute to the next generation of research, policy-making, and social activities.

     The scope of our activities is spread across the globe, which explains the rapid internationalization of the School. Our School has signed accords and memorandums with universities across Asia and around the world, and is carrying out ongoing academic exchanges and collaborative research. Right now, over 180 international students are enrolled in our School. We have 12 departments and 12 affiliated facilities with advanced research capacity in diverse fields on par with the global standards. Our programs include Applied Biological Chemistry and Biotechnology, which are highly competitive with European and North American universities in molecular research, while programs like our Global Agricultural Science take an international approach towards interdisciplinary research in an effort to resolve the problems facing developing countries. The basic research going on at our affiliated facilities are related to these fields or support other foundational research, making it vital to education and research at our School.

     Highly motivated overseas students at our Graduate School can expect to experience world-class research on the road to finding their career path.
