Characteristics

Characteristics of The Graduate School of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries

    The Graduate School of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries provides highly specialized education in the various fields which support the sound living of human communities. These include agriculture, forestry and fisheries, food science, environmental and life sciences. The School aims to develop specialists in the southern Kyushu area, which is a significant food supplier in Japan, as well as Southeast Asia extending to the South Pacific. The goal for students is to make a difference in the sustainable production of resources, their rational use and environmental conservation. In doing so, the School aims to contribute to solving the pressing issues which local communities and the world are facing, such as rapid changes in the globalization of industries, global climate change and the sharp drop in the productive human population, a problem which is particularly serious in rural communities.

    To solve these problems, the former Graduate School of Agriculture and Graduate School of Fisheries were reorganised into the Graduate School of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries consisting of four Departments: Agriculture, Natural Resources and Forestry; Food Innovation Science; Field Environment Science; and Fisheries Resource Science. The aim is to integrate agriculture and fisheries to provide high-quality education.
