Course of Food and Nutritional Sciences

Today, Japan faces many issues in the areas of food and nutrition, including low food self-sufficiency rate, food supply problems resulting from global population growth and global warming, and food safety issues. In order to cope with the diverse food problems, specialists with advanced practical expertise are expected to address the problems in a comprehensive and flexible manner from a global perspective.

Taking these social circumstances into consideration, with the goal of “establishing a graduate school to nurture highly skilled professionals,” the Graduate School of Food and Nutritional Sciences aims to further promote cooperation among research institutions, universities, and businesses, and provide graduate school education to nurture “highly skilled professionals who play an active role in the global fields of food and nutrition sciences, food safety and security, and extension of healthy life expectancy through sports, which is a strength of the University.”

  1. Based on the school motto of Toyo University, all students are required to take the class of “Ethics for Food Technologists and Researchers” as a compulsory subject in order to acquire the basic knowledge of philosophy.
  2. Students are also required to complete the compulsory subjects of “Advanced Food Safety and Crisis Management,” “Advanced Food Hygiene,” and “Food Ingredients Seminar,” to acquire advanced and extensive knowledge of dietary environments. They also need to take the class of “Innovation in Human Resource Development” to become highly skilled professionals who will be demanded by society and business.
  3. Through English lectures, seminars, and research activities in basic subjects, students are expected to enhance their practical English skills and acquire the basic abilities to work globally.
  4. Students will touch on various academic fields and acquire interdisciplinary research capabilities to meet the needs of the times.

Message from Professor of Food and Nutritional Sciences

The Graduate School of Food and Nutritional Sciences, covering the fields of global food science and sport, health, and nutrition science, aims to nurture human resources equipped with a wide range of professional knowledge, sense of morality, and global perspectives, and the ability to resolve food- and health-related problems in modern society. In addition to research work which was given importance in the conventional graduate education, this course focuses on coursework to learn the basic knowledge, such as a wide range of professional knowledge on food, sense of morality, and language and communication skills in order to be able to respond to industrial and social needs as highly skilled professionals. Based on this foundation, we will strive to nurture high-level specialists to be engaged in practical activities who have the ability to resolve a wide range of food-related problems through the master’s thesis research process and professional education, and to achieve the realization of a graduate school which can produce socially important human resources to work across specialty boundaries. Also, with the aim of helping students develop global perspectives, overseas training is provided as a mandatory program, and the course accepts working adults who wish to develop their career in the field of food science with consideration for nurturing individuals who can contribute to the globalization of food-related companies. Through the above human resource development, the course is committed to contributing to the creation of a society where people can stay healthy, bright, and active throughout their lives.
