Graduate School Guide

Biological and Environmental Science Course

Details of the courses

This course combines much of the existing Biological Production Science Major and Human and Environmental Science Major, in response to the need for pro-environment and viably sustainable production activities. Students learn about both biological production techniques and the environment, to deepen their expertise. For example, a student may be intensely interested in production (agricultural bioscience) and the environment (human and environmental science). But, as a researcher examining pesticide problems who has an intimate knowledge of environmentally important microorganisms, or a farmer who specializes in genetic manipulation, or a residential environment coordinator who specializes in plant cultivation and insect pest control, each of these specialists must also possess a sense of other professional areas. This major conducts education and research with the goal of training researchers and professionals to broaden the scope of their knowledge and thus reach higher levels of understanding than ever before.
