Faculty of Life and Environmental Science

image1 The Faculty of Life and Environmental Science was established in October of 1995 by reorganization of the Faculty of Agriculture and the Department of Biology in the Faculty of Science. The Faculty consists of four departments: Biological Science, Life Science and Biotechnology, Agricultural and Forest Sciences, Regional Environmental Sciences. The Marine Biological Station, University Farms, and University Forests were attached to the Faculty as the Education and Research Center for Biological Resources.
 The Faculty’s objectives are: (1) to understand the mechanism of biological systems, (2) to develop new technologies including biotechnology, environmental preservation and reclamation, and sustainable production systems, (3) to apply scientific results and technologies in agriculture, forestry, fishery and other bioindustry fields, and, (4) to make contributions to local communities.
 The undergraduate program offers a comprehensive curriculum that combines lectures, laboratory and field work, and small-group instruction. Laboratory and field works help undergraduates deepen their understanding of the related lectures. Small-group classes improve mutual understanding between students and faculties. Graduates from our faculty find employment in private companies, enter the civil service, or become high school science teachers. Students who want to continue their research enter Master courses in the Graduate School of Life and Environmental Science.


International Admission Policy

 Our faculty seeks students who are interested in subjects including biology, life science, biotechnology, agriculture, agricultural economics, ecology, environmental science, and agricultural engineering. We are committed to providing high quality and professional education and research opportunities to students with a wide variety of backgrounds. As part of our admission standards, we give weight to students most likely to benefit from our study and research programs. We provide some specific admission criteria for international students in which programs will be conducted in English. For more information please see our web site.

 The Faculty of Life and Environmental Science presents an attractive environment for studying Life from basic biology to life science, biotechnology, agriculture, forestry, ecology and environmental sciences. We provide the multidisciplinary programs from basic subjects to the latest research developments and innovations including the interdisciplinary scientific issues to develop a diverse portfolio of sceintific skills to advance sustainable development and quality of life. Our programs are research-led and integrative, ensuring that our courses are at the cutting edge and that our students are prepared for the future. So far, our over 4000 graduates both at home and abroad with multidisciplinary backgrounds have been well qualified for a wide variety of careers within science-based industries, academia, research and commercial sectors. THe Faculty has now four departments: Biological Science, Life Science and Biotechnology, Agricultural and Forest Sciences, and Regional Environmental Sciences. In addition, Education and Research Center provides an opportunity of field-based research and education in the off-site facilities for Agricultural, Forest and Marine Biological sciences. Our mission is to inspire and transform the students by providing an innovative learning experience and Graduate School of Life and Environmental Science is open for advanced further studies. Our faculty and staff invite all students strongly motivated to study Life with us in Matsue, known as the "City of Water".
