Tokyo University of Science


Chemistry is study to explore the essence of substances, and the explorations creates new, useful substances; it serves as the backbone in the field of Science and technology. The Department of Chemistry teaches students, and working people who seek to learn the field of science in the evening, a variety of knowledge and techniques, ranging from the basics to applied chemistry. The Department also explores the latest research in chemistry, and produces persons with motivation and talent, such as researchers, engineers and educators who can contribute to human society.

  • Learn with a focus on physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry, which are necessary for understanding the essence of chemistry, and acquire a broad array of knowledge through diverse subjects.
  • Learn cutting-edge chemistry starting with the basics in a practical manner through labs, discussions and graduation research, acquire an inquiring mind and the capacity to think logically, and master the ability to support the various fields of modern science, which is advancing at a remarkable pace.
