(As of May 2020)

The Graduate School of Science, which is made up of 6 departments—Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics, Applied Physics, and Mathematics and Science Education—broadly covers new frontier areas that are being pioneered one after another outside of the existing limits, in addition to the basic areas of science. The Graduate School, which approaches research activities at global standards where faculty members and students are unified, is a high-level research and educational institution in Japan. Many faculties belonging to The Graduate School of Science keep introducing their distinguished scientific achievement to the world as core members of Research Institute of Science and Technology (RIST), significantly contributing to the progress of basic science in a variety of research fields. In addition, with the aim of supporting graduate students who wish to foray into new sectors, Department of Physics as well as Applied Physics have adopted "Joint Graduate School System" that welcomes active front-line researchers from outside of the University as visiting faculty members.
