Kyoto University: Agriculture, Food, & Environment
Life, food and the environment — these are the principal focus of Kyoto University (KU)’s Faculty of Agriculture. While these keywords are commonly used across agricultural schools and faculties in Japan, KU employs an interdisciplinary approach, rather than simply undertake research in each field, to improving food security along with global environmental sustainability, so as to support the world’s rapidly growing population.
Students at the Faculty will have opportunities to learn to tackle such problems in a holistic manner.
