Comprehensive education in food production and the environment

Shizuoka Prefecture is rich in agricultural, forestry and fisheries resources, and boasts one of Japan's highest concentrations of food, chemical and biotechnology-related companies, and the Faculty actively engages in fieldwork and research activities relating to the region. The study of agricultural science is founded in biology and draws on such fields as chemistry, physics, economics and sociology for its methods. The curriculum covers a broad range of subjects, including bioproduction technology; environmental, food, and resource problems: and international cooperation. However, the principal focus is food and the environment, the two great themes of importance for humanity.
