Department of Mathematics

Mathematics, a most fundamental discipline that has been developed since the time of ancient Greece, has contributed to the development of contemporary social sciences, such as computer science and statistical mathematics. Small classes enable students to study a broad range of subjects intensely, ranging from algebra, geometry, and mathematical analysis to computer science and mathematical physics.

Department of Physics

Since physics is the study to discover theories in natural phenomena, it covers a very wide range of subjects from the maximum scale of universe to its minimum components, including particles, nuclei, atoms, and molecules. Students will start from studying introductory materials and then move progressively to the latest research topics in order to develop their physics sensibilities and enhance their logical thinking through extensive experimentation.

Department of Chemistry

Chemistry uncovers the principles of reactions that transform substances and its mission is to produce substances that have new functions by the application of such principles. By offering a curriculum that emphasizes experimentation and instructions focused on the interests of individual students, the department aims to help the students accurately understand the properties and reactions of substances, starting with the fundamentals of the discipline.

Department of Life Science

All organisms are made of cells, and those cells are made of molecules. Focusing on the four disciplines of molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, and molecular and cellular biology, students will learn about the living nature of cells; study advanced topics in life science, including the current state of development in this constantly evolving field and the potential of applied technologies therein; and explore the question of what it means to be alive.
