In this Division, education and research aims to restore and conserve natural environments that have been deteriorating as a result of human activity, and create a safe and comfortable society where nature and humans can coexist. We aim to nurture promising individuals who can contribute to the progress of this field, as well as work on advanced academic research for problem solving in this field.
In order to create a sustainable local community in which nature and humans can coexist, and given the current era of extremely advanced science and technology with a wide range of human relationships, it is essential to nurture specialists with a broad outlook who are highly creative and independent in decision-making, as well as able to provide leadership for the community. In addition, it is important to expand on relevant academic research, and make use of and promote the research results for the benefit of the community. For this purpose, with the Master’s Degree Course, we aim to educate specialists who, through coordinated cooperation with experts in various environmental fields, can gain a deep understanding of the relationships between the environment/ecosystems and human activities from a living organism, biological and human perspective related to environments such as the pedosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere.
In order to achieve the above, four research fields (details below) have been set up in the Division of Environmental Science as the basic units for education and research.
