4. Students who want to dare challenge modern math, and contribute its development by becoming experts of math.

Department of Physics

In physics wide variety of phenomena are understood based on fundamental laws and principles in length scales from elementary particles to the universe, and we are challenging to the latest frontiers of physics. Our aim is to provide the best educational experience for each of our students and the opportunities of obtaining the skills to make professional contributions to society in the future, as engineers or researchers, by utilizing knowledge of physics.
We welcome highly motivated students as follows;
1. Students who have a great interest in the field of physics and a desire to study related problems.
2. Students who have the academic basis to begin our programs, such as Mechanics, Electromagnetism, and Quantum Mechanics, and have a demonstrable ability for logical thinking to challenge the complex problems of physics.
3. Individuals who desire to play an active role in society in the future by utilizing professional knowledge learned in the University.

Department of Chemistry

The chemistry is a branch of natural science whose basic premise is to understand substances and their chemical phenomena. Accordingly, the Chemistry Department mandates to equip students with the requisite professional knowledge and research technology that are related to the creation, structures, and changes of substances. From this premise, the students who satisfy the conditions below are welcome to join our program.
1. Those whose possess a fair background in basic natural science, based on their high school major.
2. Individuals who have burning desire and passion to challenge to the realms of chemistry.
3. Individuals who can think logically and flexible when confronted with any kind of chemistry related problems.
4. Prospectives who have a strong zeal and aptitude to contribute the development of chemistry, and a desire to do their best for it.

Department of Biological Science

From last century, biological science is attracting more attention from the society since it is playing indispensable roles on our life, culture and ecosystem.
Basic knowledge and analytical techniques in biological science are important not only for understanding living organisms, but also application in diverse areas such as medical and pharmaceutical science,agriculture, fisheries, and biotechnology industries.
This department aim to educate students with broad vision and research expertise in biological science.
For this purpose we provide an integrated educational program that includes lectures, practical and laboratory training, which covers a wide spectrum of biology ranging from molecular to environmental level.
We are keen to receive applications from all the students with one or more of the following:
1. Strong interest in biological science.
2. Sufficient academic education to study in Shizuoka University.
3. Tenacity, carefulness and autonomy to work on challenging issues.
4. Ambition to play active roles in biological science in the future.

Department of Geosciences

Department of Geosciences is seeking students who are very curious and interested in the dynamics of Earth and passionate about exploring the realm of nature. Our aim is to understand and unravel the scientific truth about the evolution of Earth, present and past, by adopting a multidisciplinary approach.
We welcome energetic and brilliant students who have:
