Natural Sciences

In the Division of Natural Sciences we study fundamental problems in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, earth science, astronomy, and mathematics. The scale of our research extends from elementary particles to the universe, and the time spans over 13 billion years since the birth of the universe, the formation of the solar system and the earth, and the birth and evolution of life on the earth. We not only educate students to improve their specific research skills in each field, but also educate them so that they can acquire the ability to seek for a universal truth in nature with a bird’s-eye view.

Advances in science have brought great abundance to human society. However, in today’s world, science has been highly specialized and subdivided, and even front-line researchers are sometimes unable to communicate with ones in different fields. In the Division of Natural Sciences we educate students so that they can acquire the ability to explore the relationship between science and society from an interdisciplinary perspective over the boundaries of conventional discipline of science while making use of a wide range of insights and sound judgments throughout science.
