Chemistry
Graduate Major

Explore the nature of various matter-related phenomena
and create new useful materials

In the Graduate Major of Chemistry we aim to help students acquire fundamental knowledge of matter-related phenomena and advanced specialized skills. Students will work independently on new challenges and develop their inquisitive skills, enabling them to explore the deep truths of chemistry, such as creation of new materials and discovery of the nature of various matter-related phenomena. Students will thereby fully contribute to achieving a prosperous society.

Objectives

To realize prosperous society through the power of
advanced chemistry

In the Master's Program, we aim to cultivate individuals who possess a broad outlook based on both fundamental knowledge of matter and advanced specialized academic ability, and who can work independently on new problems.

In the Doctoral Program, we aim to cultivate individuals who possess a broad outlook based on both fundamental knowledge of matter and advanced specialized academic ability, and who can contribute to the development and application of natural science as a leader in a specialized field of chemistry.
