Why study Life and Environmental Science?

Humanity faces an unprecedented range of challenges in the 21st century. From climate change to species loss, the emergence of new diseases, the need to feed a growing population and the opportunities and challenges posed by advances in genetic technology. Along with these issues are challenges we face both in protecting our current environment and in the remediation of environments damaged by human activities, while improving the quality of life for the poorest people on our planet.

A thorough understanding of Earth’s living and non-living systems is needed to help us to develop robust solutions to these issues, with integrated, cross-disciplinary approaches at the forefront.

Our Interdisciplinary Program in Life and Environmental Sciences allows students to study a wide variety of subjects, selecting those courses which interest them the most and develop their own degree. The University of Tsukuba School of Life and Environmental Sciences offers a range of four-year undergraduate degree programs taught in English.
