Special Graduate Course on Advanced Sciences

The curriculum of this course is specifically designed for students to acquire not only highly specialized knowledge and skills, but also, fundamental competency for researchers, such as, originality, ability to find problems and means of solving them, leading to the deep insight based on the wide-range viewpoint covering various research fields and potential to be a key-person in the world-wide researcher's community.

Environmental Sciences

This division conducts, on the basis of physics, chemistry and biology and their interdisciplinary field, cutting-edge studies on the structure and variation mechanisms of the environment and ecosystems in coastal waters and their related environmental issues, and pollution and toxic effects of hazardous chemicals on a regional and a global scale. Students can mainly study environmental dynamics, environmental chemistry and environmental biology.
