What is Environmental Science?

The ability to comprehensively understand natural phenomena from multiple perspectives of science is essential to explain the mechanisms and changes in the natural environment. The curriculum of this program is designed to provide students with a foundation in physics, chemistry, biology, and geology, as well as earth science, environmental biology, and material science, which are important for understanding the natural environment. In addition, students take practical training and laboratory courses in various fields and study environmental sociology in order to cultivate a rich view of nature. Through these courses, we cultivate human resources capable of exploring new scientific ideas to reveal various phenomena in the natural environment and playing an active role in the fields of ecosystems and environmental conservation.
