Introduction

Globalization has caused various environmental issues around the world that often transcend borders. In order to solve these problems, to conserve the earth’s precious environment for future generations and to build up a sustainable society, this program is intended to foster the development of professionals and researchers who can contribute to the protection of global and local environments based on extensive knowledge, global perspectives and the ability to act practically using their expertise. Graduates are expected to understand different cultures, customs and values, and to be able to cope with environmental problems in collaboration with researchers and experts from various countries. The program involves practical education in English through classes, work and seminars with the aim of seeking ways to maintain and enhance the sustainability of the earth system. Students adopt a main theme for their Master’s or Doctoral thesis under a supervisor, and simultaneously can study a sub-research topic from a different field within a study group. This approach fosters the ability to judge international environmental problems appropriately on the basis of interdisciplinary focus.
 
 

Special Research for Theses

Students perform two or three years of special research under a supervisor on a main topic chosen from the fields of study listed below, and also can investigate a sub-research topic as a mini-project in the course seminar. The sub-research topic should be in a field different from that of the main topic.
Fields of Study
• Human and Ecological Systems, Environmental Adaptation Science, Practical Science for the Environment, Global Environmental Management (Division of Environmental Science Development)
• Biogeochemistry, Atmosphere-Ocean and Climate Dynamics, Cryosphere Science (Division of Earth System Science)
