Faculty of Biosphere – Geosphere Science

Outline

The Faculty of Biosphere - Geosphere Science develops talented individuals who can think of the earth, which is a safe place for humans to live and has a variety of habitats, as one complex system.

To achieve this goal, this program is composed of 6 courses: “botanical and horticultural science”, “zoological and entomological science”, “geography and archaeology”, “geoscience and aerography”, “astronomy” and “dinosaur science and paleontology”.
