Interchange with Other Disciplines

To ensure the resolution of global food resources problems in the 21st century, it is essential to develop personnel through education that integrates the humanities and sciences – the humanities including education and economics, and sciences including agriculture, engineering, fisheries science, global environment, and public health.

The Graduate School of Global Food Resources aims to produce world-class pioneers with broad perspectives and international negotiation skills who are capable of addressing various food resources challenges. To achieve this aim, the School encourages students to learn cultural aspects of the problems (e.g., current world affairs, economics, history, races/ethnic groups, and thought) as well as their technical aspects, such as food production and environmental conservation, through educational and research programs offered by faculty members from different fields of specialization.

Since the School offers a curriculum integrating the humanities and sciences, lectures on fundamental science subjects will be provided primarily for students with majors in humanities to promote their understanding of science subjects. Furthermore, students will also be taught how to organize international conferences and symposiums.
