Graduate School of Global Food Resources

Graduate School of Global Food Resources has a specialized approach, broad knowledge and perspectives, and concrete knowledge about various problems related to population growth, climate change, widening economic disparities, and food resource production, distribution, and distribution in the world. This is a new graduate school established in April 2017 with the aim of cultivating human resources who aim to become future international leaders with the ability to act, integrate, organize, and solve problems to present and implement solutions.

One of the characteristics of this school is the education and research that integrates the humanities and sciences by faculty members with diverse specialties such as agriculture related to food resources, fisheries, water and environment, energy, health and hygiene, international economics and international politics. In addition, lectures on the latest international food situations are given by officials from the United Nations and international organizations. All lectures are given in English by domestic and overseas faculty members.

Another feature is the compulsory fieldwork course called "Wundervogel type training", which has been used in universities, companies, and local governments aiming to realize sustainable food production in harmony with the environment in Denmark, a developed country. In addition, in Myanmar, we are conducting hands-on practical training, such as recognizing the problem of food resources through experiential learning in rural areas.

Education and research at our school covers a wide range of goals, including goals 1, 2, 6, 7, 9, 12, 13, 14, and 15 of the SDGs.
