Department of Food and Life Sciences, Faculty of Food and Nutritional Sciences 食環境科学部食環境科学科

Educational Goals

We encourage students to comprehend life from the aspect of food through food functional science, nutrition, and health science. Based on biotechnology, we make effective use of unexploited food resources and provide the opportunity for students to learn current analytical techniques. We also train human health professionals who can protect and enrich food culture through dietary education.


Who will ensure food safety? The issue of food safety has been attracting much attention recently. Indeed, people exchange opinions about it in newspapers, on TV programs, and in magazines.
However, there are still few people who are able to professionally discuss life and the environment and take action on their behalf, based on the idea of food, to realize a society where people can live safely. The department was founded to meet such demands of the times. We aim to create a new field of life science on the basis of food, a field that is required in the present age. We also aim to train food experts who have acquired correct knowledge and analytical techniques.


Food Science Course

Students in this course will learn about food from the viewpoint of life science, and acquire integrative knowledge and techniques from dietary education to food safety and security, based on advanced biotechnology. This course is suitable for those who are interested in all aspects of food, such as dietary education, food culture, food functional science, and nutrition and health science, and those who wish to solve problems involving food.

Features of the course

Sports and Food Function Course

This course is best for those who are interested in the nutritional functions of food related to sports, and who wish to provide assistance to athletes, using practical nutritional management. Students in this course will learn about nutrition, food science and hygiene, as well as the relationships between human structure/functions, exercise, and the function of food (nutrition) based on the knowledge of life science, to enable them to become coaches who supervise the diets and nutrient intake of athletes.

Features of the course


食品の機能科学や栄養、健康科学などを通して食の観点から生命をとらえ、バイオテクノロジーを基礎に、まだ利用されていない食資源の有効活用や、最新の分析技術を修得します。 また、食育を通じて、私たちの食文化を維持・向上させ、健やかないのちを育むプロフェッショナルを育成します。


しかし、安心して暮らせる社会のために、「食」を中心に据えた視点から生命や環境を専門的に論じ、行動できる人はあまり多くはありません。 食環境科学科は、そのような時代のニーズに応えて誕生しました。21 世紀にふさわしい「食」を核にした生命科学を創生し、正しい知識と分析力を身につけた「食の専門家」を養成することを目的としています。



生命科学の視点から「食」を学び、最先端のバイオテクノロジーをベースに、食育から食の安全・安心ま での総合的な知識と技術を身につけます。食育・食文化、食品の機能科学、栄養・健康科学など、食にかかわることに興味を持つ人、食を取り巻くさまざまな問 題を解決したいと考えている人にふさわしいコースです。

フードサイエンス専攻 特色


スポーツに関連した食品の栄養学的機能に興味を持つ人、実践的栄養管理を用いて、スポーツ選手を栄養 面からサポートすることを目指す人に最適のコースです。生命科学の知識を基礎として、栄養学、食品学、衛生学、そして人体の構造と機能、運動と食品が持つ 機能(栄養)の関係を学び、アスリートの食事・栄養の摂り方の指導者を目指します。
