Natural Sciences

The Department of Natural Sciences is the framework within which you can study a wide range of natural sciences categorized in chemistry, biology, geology and mathematics. The students are not expected to concentrate only on a category but are strongly encouraged to study various subjects across the categories. The graduates are expected to have a comprehensive understanding of natural sciences and technologies in the modern society.

Education Programs

In the first year, the students take introductory subjects in natural sciences, including laboratory works. In the second and third years, we offer a variety of advanced subjects such as quantum physics, statistical physics, computational chemistry, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, botany, zoology, microbiology, planet science, astronomy, and mathematical sciences. In the fourth year, the students have a chance to take part in one of our research projects in progress. The students can obtain the teaching certificates in science and/or mathematics as well as the curator certificate required for working in museum, zoo, and aquarium.

Fieldwork and Instrumental Analysis

The Department of Natural Sciences offers practical training programs in fieldwork and instrumental analysis. The fieldwork program covers botany, zoology, geology, astronomy, and geography and is carried out in various places in the world, including Scotland, Hawaii, Izu Oshima, and Okinawa. Incorporation with the fieldwork, we also offer intensive training programs on analytical instruments, such as XRF (X-ray Fluorescence spectrometer), HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatograph), and GC/MS (Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer).

After the Department of Natural Sciences

The graduates are expected to work as teachers and curators in educational institutions as well as science journalists in various media. The graduates are also expected to work as analysts and consultants in public organization and various industries. If you want to continue with research and go on to an academic position, you are expected to proceed to a graduate course in the Tokyo City University or elsewhere.
