Faculty of Environmental Studies

Akihiro Taimura Akihiro Taimura
Dean, Faculty of Environmental Studies

The Faculty of Environmental Studies was established in October 1997, as the first environmental faculty among our national universities. What is especially noteworthy is that it aims for a highly original synthesis of natural sciences, social sciences and humanities in environmental education and research.

The ideals which the Faculty pursues are the conservation of the environment, the sustainable development of human society, and finally the attainment of harmonious symbiosis between mankind and the global environment in the face of increasingly serious environmental problems.
Students are expected to be trained as environmental experts competent to tackle existing environmental problems and contribute their share to the realization of those ideals.

As shown in the organization chart below, the Faculty has 2 courses for students and 2 divisions for faculty members. Each of the students is enrolled in one of the courses and every faculty member belongs to one of the divisions.
