The agriculture and forest science course consists of four fields: agricultural production, plant pathology, forest environmental science and agriculture and resource management. We provide an extensive educational program with coursework in farm and forest resource use, regional management in cooperation with technological development in the farm management, and distribution of agricultural products. Our aim of education is the realization of sustainable human life, appropriate systems of bio-production, activation of agriculture, stockbreeding and forestry through improving the technology, and development of methods to use the multiple functions of farm and forest. Our students acquire profound knowledge in specialized technologies in agriculture, animal science, fishery, forest science, forestry and social science, and plant disease control. We aim to train specialists, researchers, teachers and employers with entrepreneurial spirits to create the future of the agricultural and timber industries.
