Exploring the possibilities of food and agricultural resources and creating new value

In the Department of International Food and Agricultural Science, we aim to solve various local and international problems related to food and agriculture with approaches from academic fields covering natural science and social science. We conduct research and education on agronomy, food science, agricultural economics and management, rural sociology and cultural studies, and educational studies, etc., which are necessary to develop trans-disciplinary approach for the field of international food and agricultural science.  Under the educational environment that helps students to acquire scientific analysis ability and logical development ability, we foster international talents with high research ability and leadership to contribute in creating new value of food and agricultural resources.

Undergraduate

Teacher-training Course

This is a course for obtaining a regular teaching certificate for junior high schools and high schools based on Japan’s Education Personnel Certification Act.

Teacher-training Course

Students who take this course are awarded a teaching certificate at the time of graduation by earning specified credits while taking specialized education in their department. This course creates a heavier workload compared to other students, as it entails taking more classes, with many lectures in the evening and many practice sessions off campus, but this could lead to a student life that much richer.

Many students who have completed this course are playing active roles as teachers in junior high schools and high schools as well as other educational institutions around the country. In the academic year 2016, 130 people obtained 291 teaching certificates (including specialized certificates for those who completed a graduate program). While passing the teacher employment examination is a difficult hurdle, every year about 150 NODAI alumnae (including former graduates) become teachers.
