The Graduate School of Agriculture at Shizuoka University, was established in 1970. In 2015, the Graduate Schools of Agriculture, Informatics, Science, and Engineering were merged, and the Graduate School of Agriculture started anew as the Graduate School of Integrated Science and Technology, Department of Agriculture. In 2022, the Interfaculty Graduate School of Mountain Watershed started as a basic organization for the delivery of inter-graduate school programs. Since 2015, we have set up a special English course for international students including the Asia Bridge Program, and we are recruiting diverse range of students. The Department of Agriculture provides a place where each student can participate actively, and continues move forward together.
