Environmental Science

Admission Policy

[Open Admission]
The two departments in the master's program (Department of Policies for Human-Environmental Symbiosis, and Department of Environmental Conservation and Planning) are placed under the Graduate School of Fisheries Science and Environmental Studies. The principle of the master's program is to promote environmental science that leads the transformation into a sustainable society that coexists with the environment. To realize this principle, the program intends to develop human resources with the ability to propose environmental policies and design environmental analyses to build recycle-oriented social systems. The program assists students to understand the socioeconomic activities as a source of environmental problems, and the values, perspectives on civilization and human behavior patterns, all closely related to the socioeconomic activities (Department of Policies for Human-Environmental Symbiosis), and to clarify the relationship among the ecosystem, natural environment, and urban environment while protecting the global environment (Department of Environmental Conservation and Planning). As we engage in the interdisciplinary study of "the environment," we seek students who understand the importance of diversified perspectives on problems of the environment and who are motivated to gain advanced and specialized knowledge and skills for unique research to contribute to society and development of environmental science.

[Admission for Working People]
As part of realizing the above educational goals, we seek people who are currently working for companies and governments and involved with environmental problems or who are interested in environmental problems and willing to work on them. Candidates must be motivated to acquire advanced and specialized knowledge and skills for unique research using such knowledge and skills.

[Admission for International Students]
Today's environmental problems are no longer at a local level but also include complicated issues on a global scale. It is important to develop human resources who can contribute to a global progress of environmental science. From this perspective, we welcome international students who are motivated to acquire a wide range of knowledge for tackling environmental problems based on diversified perspectives, and to acquire advanced and specialized knowledge and skills to solve international problems, and who are willing to work for the solution of environmental problems in their regions after completing this course.
