Exploring the unique characteristics of animals and biological phenomena

Department of Animal Science comprises two divisions: Life and control, which investigates understanding and control of life phenomena and the function of livestock, and function and production, which investigates livestock behavior and productivity. The department pursues the development of applied technologies that draw on these characteristics. Through the course, students learn the dignity and ethics of life and develop a rich spirit. The department develops human resources that can play active roles in the life sciences, showing a breadth ranging from medicine, pharmacology, and the physical sciences, to the field of production science, producing safe, quality foods.

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.
