Faculty of Biosphere-Geosphere Science

From a distance the world looks blue and green,
and the snow-capped mountains white.
From a distance the ocean meets the stream,
and the eagle takes to flight.
From a distance, there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace,
it's the voice of every man

Academic Goals

The Faculty of Biosphere-Geosphere Science uses fieldwork as the main method of research and education of the universe, the earth and various living organisms. Students in this program learn to respond to the complex needs of society by acquiring a broad knowledge base of the mechanisms of nature, changes in the natural environment and the historical relationship between human beings and the environment in which they live. With problems such as global warming, destruction of ecological systems, depletion of natural resources and waste disposal facing our planet, the Faculty of Biosphere-Geosphere Science predicates itself on the educational and practical pursuit of identifying problems and confront them by seeking practical solutions.

We seek…

  • students with profound interest in and respect for the mechanisms of nature, the environment and their relationship with human beings and nature
  • students who excel at science and history
