Graduate School of Science and Technology(Master's Program)>Department of Agriculture>Environmental Symbiosis Science Division
The Environmental Symbiosis Science Division has the educational goals to foster the human resources who have comprehensive capabilities for scientifically observing the coexistence of human and natural environments in the rich natural environment of Shinshu, from mountain and forest areas to rural-residential areas.
This division consists of three units: Forest Resource Use Science, Regional Environment Coexistence Science, and Mountain Environment Conservation Science. These units provide education and research for realizing sustainable societies, regarding forest environment conservation and repair, mountain-area disaster prevention and watershed management, forest-resource sustainable production and effective use, farming-community production environment improvement and maintenance, green environment conservation and use planning, etc.
Through the “hands-on approach” education that fully utilizes the cooperation of campuses, local research forests, and regional communities, you will acquire advanced professional knowledge and application skills that are required for 21st-century human resources who can contribute to creating a rich environment in which humans and nature can coexist sustainably.
This division researches a wide range of areas from mountain and forest areas to residential areas such as farming and mountain villages and cities.
The research targets range from micro-level objects (e.g., tree genes and cells) to macro-level objects (e.g., climatic change).
The research fields widely range from Shinshu to overseas (e.g., Alaska).
