Bachelor of Bio-resource Science / Agricultural Science

Our Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Program in Life and Environmental Sciences has a modular organization, which allows students to study a wide variety of subjects in early years, before specializing in one particular field in later years.

First year offers a broad general education with students taking foundational courses in biology, chemistry, physics and math, along with courses in Japanese, English (for non-native speakers), cultural studies, sports and arts. We strongly encourage students to continue their Japanese language studies throughout their degree.

Bachelor of Science in Biology

The 21st century has been dubbed the "Century of Biology". Technological advances have led to a revolution in our understanding of the relatedness of living organisms, and to the development of new research fields seeking to understand the processes underlying organismal development. Meanwhile, our society faces a broad range of challenges in terms of both food and fuel security. All these research areas and more can be studied in our undergraduate degree program in biological sciences.
